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

The shaming of the Right

June 7, 2019 | Media Criticism

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

Why does the Globe keep running articles on Trump’s mental health?

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

Exoneration

March 25, 2019 | Article Review, Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : A

When I first open the Boston Globe app to read the day’s headlines, I never know what I will find. This morning, after the weekend release of the Mueller report’s conclusions, I was prepared for another partisan headline and article. But I was pl.... Read more

Protest du jour

March 18, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Another day, another protest photo in the Boston Globe. Don't any of these protesters work? Or maybe their "work" is to protest? Well, at least today's protesters weren't union members. I think the reason to cover this non-story and non-even.... Read more

Merit

March 17, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Today’s Boston Globe article about whether a “white man” can compete these days in the Democrat primary for President is not surprising. The Democrats have been playing the “identity” card for years now, judging people by their superficial .... Read more

Missing Warren Reports

March 15, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Globe tirelessly covers Elizabeth Warren and her various quasi-Socialist positions. But Warren’s two recent statements that made it to the TV news were conspicuously absent for the Globe’s Warren Report series. I will leave it to you, gentle .... Read more

What the Globe does best

March 6, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Today’s front page Globe showed the potential importance of journalism. I say potential because the jury is still out on what the Globe will do with this story as it further develops. The Globe spotlight team did some great work uncovering previ.... Read more
