I heard a story on TV the other day that some school district in California was going to prohibit teachers from sending unruly students in their classroom down to the principal. I guess the idea behind it was that this action was allegedly unfairly t.... Read more

Boston Globe attacks!

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Doing a front-page spread about Donald Trump’s alleged racism is the highlight of the Boston Globe’s year. But this cover, comprising three articles and eight photos, should be seen in the context of another full-page spread, the one before the e.... Read more

Trump the authoritarian

July 14, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Here is a link to a recent opinion piece in the New York Times which charges Donald Trump with being an authoritarian leader. This means he is, or is trying to become, or wants to be, a dictator. This means he doesn't follow the rule of law and would.... Read more

The AOC-Warren-Sanders-Harris vision of our future

June 24, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This funny little article about a Maine family that decides to totally live off the land is not bad. But after I scanned through it, the following thought occurred to me: This is how the Green New Deal (if it ever gets implemented) is going to aff.... Read more

Wall Street Journal discusses government debt

June 17, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Today’s Wall Street Journal (6/14/19) has a comprehensive article on the thinking about the federal budget deficit, and by implication the debt, and how many politicians today are not too concerned about continual deficits because inflation is low .... Read more

All the news…

June 17, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This "National" page of the Boston Globe which was page A2 is being shown in its entirety because it is a good example of the kinds of bias that the Boston Globe actively participates in. You have five articles (a NYT, Washington Post, and 3 APs) all.... Read more

PE Bias Grade : N/A

According to the Left, Donald Trump is a racist, Russian-collaborating, totalitarian, neo-Nazi. But as awful and disgusting as they claim he is, he is just one of a long line of Republicans who shared most of these same values. This passes for “deb.... Read more

From one to none

May 2, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe runs a daily "correction" listing, usually on page A2, to correct mistakes in articles. These mistakes are often trivial, like someone's name was misspelled, or the date for a concert was wrong. On the big mistakes, the Globe does no.... Read more

No collusion, no exoneration

April 22, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe's front-page Friday is a good example of editorial bias. The Globe has used its front page inappropriately several times in the past, including a completely fake cover during the election which falsely predicted dire consequences fro.... Read more

Where’s my Warren Report?

April 2, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

It’s Monday, and no Warren Report in the Boston Globe. What gives? The Globe was running an almost daily Warren Report for months and months. If it wasn’t Warren, it was someone she mentored, it was a college giving her a degree, it was her do.... Read more

March 25, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe has written several articles by psychiatrists who are trying to diagnose President Donald Trump with mental illness, despite not having examined him. This runs contrary to American Psychiatric guidelines, yet the Globe continues to g.... Read more
