ATIS and airport/runway condition broadcast was giving good braking reports as reported by a vehicle when, in fact, pilots consistently were reporting poor braking on runway 4R and on taxiways. This continued for 1 1/2 hours and was still occurring when I left airport. You'd think that logan has learned this lesson!!! Someone has to stop this!
