Ha-ha. Until these yokels understand that being a left wing shill simply doesn't cut it anymore (even in Massachusetts), they are just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titantic.
The Federal Reserve reported recently that Massachusetts was the ONLY state in the union that lost more residents than it gained last year. Massachusetts also ranked 45th in economic growth. Gee what a suprise!
Vermont was also in the 40s and so was Maine and R.I. Conn. was around 34th.
Now, New Hampshire, which has the lowest tax rate in New England? The Granite State ranked 14th...heads and shoulders above its neighbors. Jeepers, what does this tell us?
No surprise that the Boston Globe is going downhill in circulation. A knee-jerk liberal broadsheet is what it is.
The Globe is "Stuck on stupid."

Perhaps folks in Boston who were reading both the NY Times and the Globe have decided they only need to read one of the papers in order to get their daily dose of bias.

(Don't look for medical breakthroughs to be accomplished by pro-abortion or pro-euthanasia doctors.)
Janet Robinson, chief executive of the New York Times Co., attributed the Globe's poor showing to a ``continuing softness in the Boston economy.''
Yeah ... always an excuse ... what she wanted to say is:
It's Bush's fault!
Maybe that's what the readers are sick of and getting their news elsewhere.

Why would they need a national news department when the DNC writes all those stories for them anyway?

Both the Globe
, and its parent, the Times
, are violating the First Rule of Shovels: "When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging." For the people at the Times
to say that they have "confidence" in the people at the Globe
is like Bill Clinton bringing out Sandy Berger to vouch for his (Clinton's) integrity.

Rather "TELLING" IMO:
Quote: Al Larkin, a Globe spokesman, said about half of its six-month circulation drop is due to a decision to eliminate bulk giveaways to hotels and other sponsored deliveries.....
The Houston Chronicle has also resorted in recent months to giving away papers (thrown on home lawns) and lowering the price of their Sunday paper, etc in an attempt to stem the circulation loss figures - just so they can keep ad prices up in their liberal rag-sheet.

(History has a long memory - but still repeats itself)
In addition to an almost comical left-wing bias, the Globe has in recent years adopted an "All-Gay-All-The-Time" motif in its reportage
. Hardly a day goes by without a "Gay"-focused story on the front page, or at least in the daily focus section. The Sunday magazine, most recently, contained what can only be described as a loving profile of Barney Frank, and the Style section routinely profiles openly gay personalities. All of this reflects the choices of the Globe's editorial board, a majority of whom are - you guessed it.
Fortunately, the Sports section remains largely untouched by bias, and it is the only reason left that I read the paper at all (that and Jeff Jacoby on Thursdays - he's the Globe's "house conservative". The rest of the op-eds range from the merely inane (Tom Oliphant) to the "Stuck-on-Stupid" (Derrick Z. Jackson) to the sickeningly anti-American (James Carroll). When you're too loonie left for Massachusetts, you've got a problem.
I'm proud to say I've done my part by cancelling my subscription several months ago and laughing at their repeated calls to renew. I get called at least once a month. EVERY TIME I tell them know and tell them I disagree with their politics. I guess I should tell them to take me off their list, but I do enjoy laughing at them and taking up their time.

Print media is struggling.
Liberal print media is failing,
although not as fast as lib talk radio :-)
I'm surprised Janet/Pinch didn't blame the internet or Bush. Or FR.
He he he.

The Glob has always been a propaganda rag. Who wants to read "all the news we're twisting to fit our world-view" anyway?
