As promised, here is the other side of the coin from yesterday’s results, the ten Boston sports media personalities with the highest (lowest) disapproval percentage.
Not many surprises here, though I’m mildly surprised that Tony Massarotti made it into the bottom 10 here. His column insulting Patriots fans really damaged him in this poll.
John Tomase certainly isn’t the worst writer or reporter in Boston, but he overwhelmingly received the most “disapprove” votes.
Only five personalities finished with more than 1000 disapproves.
The four you see in the list above were joined by Gerry Callahan (1133) disapproves. Callahan finished just ahead of Massarotti at number 11 on this list. They are all in the top ten.
Shaughnessy and Massarotti are the only ones in this group whom you would classify as mainly writers, the rest are radio/TV types.
(I’m an idiot. The original chart I posted had only 9 names and Massarotti’s approves/disapproves were switched. The above chart is a corrected one. )
