The Boston Globe loves to run photos of protesters, but only when the protests align with the Globe’s Liberal agenda. Today’s photo is about climate change, one of the big issues covered by the Globe, and it uses the specter of death as a visual. No wonder the young are so spooked by “climate change” that they are willing to destroy our capitalist economy to “save the planet.” No wonder people like AOC actually believe that human life on earth will be destroyed in 10 or 15 years.
This is propaganda, plain and simple. And the Globe’s publication of people simulating death with no opposing viewpoint presented is par for the course. In the Globe’s mind, this is settled science and not subject to debate. Not that the Globe ever sullies its pages with anything that passes for debate these days.
I love the protester in the foreground. I wonder if she was on the way from or to an “Abbolish ICE” protest? I wonder how many protests she attends each month?

Grading articles for bias is subjective. We hope that with widespread participation, we can give the reporters and editors at the Boston Globe valuable feedback on their professional work. Here are our suggestions for grading news articles for bias. (We do not rate editorial opinion columns for bias. But we do analyze the Boston Globe for overall editorial balance.)
Consider whether the article is completely free of bias (a grade of 10 or A), has been mostly free of bias (8 or 9, A- or B+), has been biased but not terribly or where the bias did not hurt the integrity of the underlying information (7 or 6, B or B-).
If the article was fairly biased overall, but subtle; or where the bias was particularly prominent but isolated to a single section, give the article a 5 or 4 (C+ or C). If the article was very biased but perhaps not intentionally so, perhaps a C- (3) would be deserved.
If the article was extremely prejudiced with major misstatements of fact, intentionally misleading, or ignored well known facts to advance a false narrative, give the article a D or F (2 or 1).
