Boston Globe proves need for Wall

November 2, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe is against the southern border Wall. It believes that by preventing the United States from building more barriers, illegal immigrants could continue to march across the border. The number of immigrants has ballooned to the highest le.... Read more

“We” are all racist unless we take action on climate change

October 30, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

You will not believe the new media narrative as published in the Sunday Boston Globe. If our society does not take immediate actions to address climate change, then we are racists. That's the incredible take-away from this "Ideas" article that exp.... Read more

Globe jumps the gun

October 28, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

We know the vast majority of Boston Globe journalists seem to support impeaching the president based on secret, leaked testimony of officials who have not been subject to cross-examination. The president has not been able to call any of his own witne.... Read more

Edited and condensed

October 22, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

An interview with a politician, news-maker Susan Rice, a former top official in the Obama White House, can create real news. But instead of handling this interview properly, the Boston Globe assigned an opinion journalist to do it. Readers are warned.... Read more

What Elizabeth Warren and Boston Globe’s Joan Vennochi have in common

October 11, 2019 | Editorial Review, Investigative Journalism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Boston Globe opinion columnist Joan Vennochi shares with readers her personal story, about how she lost her job because of her pregnancy. Vennochi uses this history to declare that she "believes" Sen. Warren, who has been telling a similar story abou.... Read more

Boston Globe jilted?

October 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Was the Boston Globe jilted by the Warren campaign, or is this just a lover's quarrel? The Wednesday editorial seemed like welcomed news. The Globe has been covering the candidacy of Elizabeth Warren very, very closely, and its editorial called fo.... Read more

Unusual editorial timeline

October 9, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This Boston Globe editorial opinion wonders what America’s foreign policy will be once Trump leaves office. It is unusual for the Globe to write an editorial about something that won’t happen for over five years. So even though the timeline for t.... Read more

The real climate-change agenda: your vote

October 2, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Left has been preaching about empowering individuals to affect massive changes to our greenhouse gas emissions. The argument goes that if we all just act individually to do our own part, the problem will be solved. This is a false argument and do.... Read more

Why Trump is right to take China on over trade

September 11, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I really like reading the Wall Street Journal. It’s news and opinions are completely separate, and I find the news reporting very balanced. Now, I may have blinders on because the Journal’s editorial pages lean conservative, so there is a danger .... Read more

Some “apology”

September 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Joan Vennochi has some nice blinders over her eyes. She thinks it is time to remake Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Warren, a socialist, needs to be rebranded as a moderate. This will be tough and I don’t think it is really doable. She has been described.... Read more

So sad

September 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I can’t imagine being columnist Jenee Osterheldt. She is on a lovely vacation in Paris and instead of enjoying herself, she is the victim of a "racist attack." Lucky for her, this gives her a front-section story about the history of American racism.... Read more

Inconsistent and erroneous

September 9, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I am not doing too many editorial reviews these days. The op-Ed columnists the Globe employs are tiresome one-note shrill voices that just attack President Trump endlessly. Too boring for me to deal with regularly. The Globe’s editorials are no .... Read more
