October 25, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

An authoritarian is a political leader who is on the way towards dictatorship. Dictators can gain power in several ways, but surprisingly, many of them do so with an election. They win the election and then they consolidate their power, hurt their fu.... Read more

October 6, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The radical Left has come up with dozens of attacks on President Trump and his allies and voters. One of the ones we hear constantly is that the Right "doesn't believe in science." Today, the Globe uses this allegation to link the Coronavirus with Cl.... Read more

Is President Trump a successful businessman or not?

October 2, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe editorializes today that Trump's large debt, much of it coming due in the next four years, could compromise his integrity and make him subject to foreign control. This is based on the undisclosed tax returns that were illegally leake.... Read more

Abortion access not at risk in Massachusetts

September 24, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I recently wrote that I have almost stopped reading the Boston Globe editorial pages because they are so biased, and my main focus is on their news articles, where they often (but not always) break the rules of journalism by publishing biased news. B.... Read more

Media hypocrisy joins political hypocrisy

September 22, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I rarely review Opinion columns in the Boston Globe anymore. Too depressing and too repetitive. But today's Globe editorial is on the Supreme Court appointment for the seat held by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and since it is a new topic, I wanted to address.... Read more

Media coverage is all about November

April 1, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe is completely obsessed with President Trump's re-election in November. They want him out, and have aligned themselves with the Democrat Party to accomplish this goal. They have been trying one strategy after another, so far without s.... Read more

Guilty by assumption

February 23, 2020 | Editorial Review

Accepting defeat

February 8, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe writes their editorial lament about President Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate and of course gets its facts completely wrong. Even their headline is wrong. Voters are not the "last line" of defense, they are the first line. Th.... Read more

Mr. Sanctimonious

January 20, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Scot Lehigh is one of the Boston Globe's most sanctimonious opinion writers. He has a moderately Liberal position on most topics but often pretends to be an objective guy who very reasonably reaches his conclusion that the Liberal position is correct.... Read more

The real problem

January 11, 2020 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This Editorial Opinion column purports to show a gender gap between the highest paid state workers. It does, but the real news is the “public service” salaries themselves. Did you know that some are making over $1 million a year? "It gets wors.... Read more
