The Carnival Triumph of the newspaper business ... more deadwood than a petrified forest ... agit-prop for the Democratic Party ... blue-blooded rumpswabs cringing under their desks! Howie certainly has a flair for nailing our newsers!

I enjoyed your post about the sale of the Bean-Town Blob ... and I know that this article covers nothing really new ... but Howie has such a way with words that I thought this rant deserved its own separate thread ... ping.

They're only printing fake “news” that fits their leftist agenda and they don't see any problem with that. They're bankrupt morally and financially. No one should ever confuse them with the archaic term "journalism".

The last journalist the Globe had was the late sportswriter Will McDonough.

15 years ago there was an alleged riot at Fenway Park during a game with the dreaded NY Yankees when the umpires pulled everybody off the field when some paper cups were thrown. Mayor Menino went ballistic over the incident and reports came in of fights, injuries etc reported in the local media expressing outrage.

Will McDonough, taking the reports at face value did what no other reporter did, paper or TV and made some calls. He wrote a column about it, how he called local hospitals for ER reports of injuries that night, the police precincts about scores of arrests, holding cells teeming with hooligans, and the Fenway ground crews coping with tons of debris. His old school journalistic work uncovered, nothing out of the ordinary.

When was the last time anyone bought any newspaper to read the news? I bet you can’t remember. The last time I bought a Globe was in 2007 when the Sox won the world series, the previous time was in 2004. I maybe by a copy of the local paper in my are twice a year.

If a group of conservative investors bought the paper, hired conservative writers save one token Leftist, it might just make money again!

Chuck Turner, God love him, finally gave me the incentive to cancel my subscription back in aught and four. I had kept my subscription, mostly out of inertia, but after l'affair Turner I got on the horn and canceled. That was a brilliant piece of "journalism". And no one got fired.
