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

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

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

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

Does this remind you of the fake cover from 2016?

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe front page of Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019 is quite offensive. Rather than covering the Michael Cohen testimony before Congress as a normal news story, it makes this as big as the “D Day invasion” or “Japanese Surrender” during WW.... Read more

The Boston Globe covered a rally on Boston Common and ran a photo of the event on page B2 of Sunday's Metro Section. The article "was held on the one month anniversary" of the recognition of his opponent, Juan Guaido. You look at the photo and you re.... Read more

The Boston Globe can’t help itself

February 6, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

I wasn't able to watch President Trump's state of the union address live, but I got to it today. It was an excellent speech and I'd say it was surprisingly well received by the Democrats. By contrast, the Republicans loved almost every minute of it. .... Read more

Globe mischaracterizes Warren letters

January 17, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Of the total of six pro-Warren letters, only one urged her to instead work hard as a Senator instead of run for President. That letter-writer clearly supported Warren, just not for the office she so desperately wants. The other five letters were supp.... Read more

January 14, 2019 | Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This is the second or third article by "love letters" columnist Meredith Goldstein featuring a TV series on Showtime which is set in Boston. The title of the show is "SMILF." This must be a crass show with a very crass title if you want to Google it..... Read more
