Two Boston Globe journalists worked on what looks and sounds like a "Spotlight" article, you know, like when they get photos of a state Senator stuffing bribery money in her bra. But Sunday's article on the junkets taken by our state legislators seem.... Read more

Missing article

October 3, 2018 | Article Review, Media Criticism

PE Bias Grade : F

There was a big news hole on page 2 of the Boston Globe today. To leave such a big white space, enough to fill with plenty of breaking news, is very unusual. I haven't seen such a mistake in years if not decades. The missing article was all about .... Read more
