Police union challenges Sen. Warren’s rhetoric

August 18, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

An extraordinary advertisement ran in the Sunday Globe, paid for by a state police union. The open letter criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s rhetoric over the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, MO. Warren called it murder (accusing the police offi.... Read more

Walker jumps on racist bandwagon

July 16, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Globe columnist Adrian Walker doesn't seem like a bad guy, but he produces very poor columns when he talks about race. Whatever objectivity-mantel he normally wears is completely thrown off. I think he is trying to channel fellow Globe columnist Rene.... Read more

Who has crossed more lines?

June 20, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The publisher of the New York Times wrote an Op-Ed that appeared in the Wall Street Journal, my favorite daily newspaper. Even though the Times has its own well-distributed publication, it chose to submit its editorial to the Journal, perhaps as a no.... Read more

Sure, let a NATO member buy a Russian anti-aircraft system

June 17, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This article is completely non-sensical. At first reading, I figured the guy just didn’t realize that the Russian-built S-400 missile defense system would be operating at the same time and in the same place as our brand new jet fighter, which the m.... Read more

Abuse of editorial power

April 30, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe has been on a campaign against US Attorney Andrew Lelling, who indicted a sitting state court judge, Shelley Joseph, for helping an illegal immigrant escape from an ICE agent who visited the courtroom to pick up the suspect. This .... Read more

Who was supposed to be guarding America against Russia in 2016?

April 22, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

When the Globe editorialized that the President’s main job was to protect America and we were let down, I thought for sure they were going to refer to President Obama and his lack of action against Russia in 2016. Nope. Their criticism is reserv.... Read more

Hypocrisy is the issue

April 22, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Globe columnist Yvonne Abraham completely misses the two points related to Bernie Sanders wealth, as shown in his tax-return release. The concern is not that Sanders rallies against “millionaires and billionaires” when he is a millionaire himself.... Read more

Crony capitalism is an unworthy goal

April 20, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I don’t expect Democrats to be the vanguards of capitalism. From ideas like rent control to the many Socialist policies in the Green New Deal, Democrats don’t seem to understand or appreciate where wealth comes from in America. Most seem to think.... Read more

Sen. Markey’s delusion

April 19, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Being lectured on science by former Ice-Cream-Truck-driver Ed Markey and Bartender Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is quite amusing. But the juggernaut of misinformed people from academia, research scientists, politicians, and students is indeed attempting t.... Read more

Conceding defeat

April 17, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Today's pro-Warren and anti-Trump Op/Ed is fairly routine fare for the Boston Globe. Today, it is about how Warren is so angry and upset, and she uses that shtick to motivate her supporters. But what caught my eye was the characterization of why A.... Read more

Racism obsession at the Globe

April 11, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I recently posted a review of a Globe article that supported newly elected Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) attacking Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Clark charged DeVos with racism, a charge the Boston Globe now uses haphazardly. Anyone and everyone on .... Read more

No, the Constitution says so

April 8, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

"The NRA says your crazy ex can have a gun," is the title of the latest anti-gun opinion piece in the Globe. Having someone's "ex" determine whether they can keep their guns should not be the basis of denying the Constitutional right to bear arms..... Read more
