Editorial columnist Renée Graham of the Boston Globe is a one-trick pony. She seems to write about one topic, which is race. Lucky for her, the Globe.... Read more

Iran finds a sucker at Brown

September 30, 2018 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Stephen Kinzer is evidently some type of professor at Brown University. If his editorial today is indicative of the teaching that goes on there, and how our kids are being trained by the Ivy League, we might as well give up and turn our country over .... Read more

Liar, liar

September 29, 2018 | Editorial Review, Investigative Journalism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Like the word “racist,” the Boston Globe’s editorial board (and some of its reporters) like to “weaponize” slurs. Everybody that disagrees with them is a racist, everybody that disagrees is a misogynist, everybody that disagrees is a homoph.... Read more

What Republicans “must” do

September 28, 2018 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Scot Lehigh is some piece of work. His sanctimonious sermons about "truth" and such are getting very tiresome, partly because his partisanship shines right through every one of his anti-Republican, anti-Trump, columns. I would normally just take m.... Read more

BG: Marchers protest likely Kavanaugh confirmation

October 7, 2018 | Basic Article Review

PE Bias Grade : F

Typical Globe fare, another Liberal protest, more coverage by the Liberal media, no pushback on what they are protesting, why they are protesting, or if their protests actually are justified. Protesters fear "the wrong message to victims of sexual.... Read more

October 6, 2018 | Article Review

PE Bias Grade : C

Today's second article related to the Kavanaugh confirmation vote decries the partisanship of the two parties in Congress and across the country, and blames Donald Trump. Donald Trump is the Left's boogeyman, always available to dump scorn on. The.... Read more

Is the Boston Globe purposely ignoring potential chemical weapons use?

September 13, 2018 | Investigative Journalism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The conflict in Syria is distressing on so many levels, but perhaps of greatest concern is the use by the Syrian government of chemical weapons on its citizens. When a government uses such weapons of "mass destruction" indiscriminately, it "normalize.... Read more

Boston Globe won’t admit or apologize for mistake

September 13, 2018 | Investigative Journalism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Newspapers usually like to make a big deal about how accurate their coverage is. They will run a "correction" when they get a historical date wrong or if they misspell someone's name. The Boston Globe has run plenty of these types of corrections, som.... Read more

Missing article

October 3, 2018 | Article Review, Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : F

There was a big news hole on page 2 of the Boston Globe today. To leave such a big white space, enough to fill with plenty of breaking news, is very unusual. I haven't seen such a mistake in years if not decades. The missing article was all about .... Read more

I simply cannot write another review of the Boston Globe's coverage of the Judge Kavanaugh nominating process. I need a break. But today's column had one line jump out at me, so I wanted to focus on that, because it deserves some additional scruti.... Read more
