Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans announced this week that he is leaving the department, a scoop that WBZ first reported last month. Aside from vindicating WBZ’s initial report, the announcement raised questions about prior comments made by Mayor Marty Walsh and Evans, who not only denied the report, but also disparaged the outlet for breaking the news.

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney was joined by Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University, Callie Crossley of WGBH News, Tom Fiedler of Boston University and Roy Harris, a former journalist at The Wall Street Journal.
