Jay Severin Has Issues

...namely, with his own background. Former Boston talkie Jay Severin recently started a syndicated show on several stations nationwide, including our local WPHT-AM, where he bumped Dom Giardano from 7 PM to 10 PM weeknights. His bio from previous jobs touts his Master's Degree from Boston University (sorry, no Master's degree, just his BA from Vassar) and some sort of Pulitzer Award for Online Journalism (which doesn't exist, at least not for individuals). He also has been an advisor to Presidential campaigns (Bush I in 1980, Buchanan in 1988 - guess you can't win 'em all) and also to several Senate and state races. Severin was on The Situation with Tucker Carlson for a cup of coffee before being booted off. His first night on syndication, Severin celebrated the execution of Tookie Williams and said "it's not about party" then proceeded to bash Democrats all night long. As quoted by the Boston Globe:
"I certainly regret any discomfort that may have been caused by the misunderstanding of my remarks."
