Having grown up outside of Boston, I can tell you that it has the best Fourth of July celebration in the country. The Boston Pops playing at the Hatch Shell on the shore of the Charles River, the National Guard brings out some howitzers for the climax of the 1812 Overture … there’s just nothing like it.
For years, after leaving my hometown, I could watch on Bravo – that’s how big a deal it was. But this year, WBZ-TV decided it wasn’t spectacular enough and altered some of the video footage to include Boston landmarks.
And the excuse is, “it’s not news?”
