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

Editorial counting the days until the release of the Mueller Report

April 8, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

That the Boston Globe editorial board takes direction from MoveOn.org is now confirmed. Today's poor excuse for outrage is that Attorney General William Barr is taking a few weeks to carefully review and redact portions of the Mueller Report befor.... Read more

Renee Graham asserts Trump won because of racism

April 7, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Wednesday's Boston Globe has an editorial opinion by racist Globe writer Renee Graham. 99.99% of Graham's columns are about race and 99.98% are against President Donald Trump, alleging he is a not-so-secret White Supremacist. Today's piece tries t.... Read more

Where’s the Metro connection?

April 2, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Yvonne Abraham’s tired essays against Donald Trump contain falsehoods and misinformation, but I won’t bother to rebut her stupid arguments because she is just a partisan flack who hates the president and will never treat him fairly. But most Glob.... Read more

So this is racism?

March 28, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Today, my media criticism is about the Globe’s opinion coverage of racism, but it isn’t about Renee Graham, the General and Allied Commander of the Globe’s racism army. This is about a column by her Lieutenant, Joan Vennochi, who does an admira.... Read more

American fiction

March 15, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Socialized higher education might be the Left's new target for government takeover, now that we've discovered the rich and famous have found a way to guarantee college acceptances by bribing coaches and test proctors. But if the penalties these ch.... Read more

Editorial is no joke

March 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

For two years, the Boston Globe has been reporting on the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia. It makes it into the paper in one form or another at least a couple of times every single week. It has probably been mentioned hundreds of times. Strike.... Read more

Logical inconsistency

March 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

If I spent all day just pointing out logical inconsistencies in the editorial positions of the Boston Globe and its regular and guest columnists, I wouldn't get to any news article reviews. Today's editorial claims that providing assistance to the.... Read more

Editorial misrepresents GOP senators’ defections

March 6, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

A handful of Republican senators have finally stepped up to question — quite rightly — whether there truly is a “national emergency’’ at the nation’s border with Mexico. This is the start of the Boston Globe editorial praising GOP Sena.... Read more
