Correction. Boston Herald publisher Pat Purcell disputes an assertion I made last Friday, a day on which he announced the elimination of 19 jobs, that "it remains to be seen whether Purcell can now right the ship and return his struggling paper to profitability."
"I have a bone to pick with you. We are profitable," Purcell told me this morning, adding that the Herald was profitable even before Friday's cuts.
Purcell declined to discuss the numbers regarding his privately held Herald Media company.
