On Friday, we released a statement that said the allegations of sunroofs in armored trucks were untrue.

We are happy to report that the media concurred and wrote several stories about how the governor was playing fast and loose with the truth in an attempt to justify outsourcing the jobs of those who operate the trucks―and it’s not the first time. The media even published photos (like the one above) of the supposed “sunroofs,” which in no way look like what he said. Click on any of the stories below to see for yourself.

As we said in our statement, “All that we have asked for is for MBTA leadership and the Baker Administration to be truthful, but they have chosen time and again to say anything in an attempt to justify getting rid of hardworking public employees.”
