MyFoxBoston.com) – The Boston Business Journal and The Boston Globe are both reporting that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft wants to buy The Boston Globe.
The reports say members of the Kraft Group have received a presentation from the company hired by the New York Times to sell the Globe. The sale also includes Boston.com and the Worcester Telegram.

Wrong company. Kraft Group owns Int’l Paper and the NE Patriots
Is this guy just another limousine leftist?
Kraft’s politics seem to be that of a typical businessman who funds the party in power (which is Dem in Massachusetts). But he is very good friends with Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump. He is no liberal partisan.
Pretty much.He will throw some money at Reps but mostly Dem
If he does buy I look forward to the hatchet he’ll wield in the sports dept. Some of the columnists are insufferable(Dan Shaugnessy to start)
Analysts predict a selling price point of $80 million to $120 million. The Globe was sold in 1993 to the Times Co. for $1.1 billion.
Evidently Kraft bought some land around there, and that may be part of the reason why the value is so much less. Of course the state of print media sure didn’t help.
I’m not sure why Kraft would want to invest in this dying medium.
Hopefully the first thing he does is fire Dan Shaughnessy.
He does own a paper company. Kraft is no dummy. If there’s value he;ll buy. Plus the asking price is peanuts to him
You think Shank is a bit nervous that “Thanks Myra” could be his boss? LOL!
Shank is a coward. He’ll retire and collect his Globe pension(if there still is one)
As a (many years) FORMER Globe reader, I’d advise Kraft to examine why so many readers bailed out on the Globe.
Once I read it to see what “other opinions” were. When the paper insulted my intelligence and everything I believed in, I quit, as have other thousands.
I’d hope that Mr. Kraft would abandon a proven failure of a policy. (I do hope!!)
He’s a democrat, but more of a moderate. His son Johnathan, the Patriot’s president held fundraisers for Romney.
Kraft is a big lefty. I hope he takes a bath on this.
I agree... Jonathan is a republican in hiding, IMO. He was a Bain guy. And supported Romney.
Robert is a Dem but really is a closet Republican too. He only appears to be a Dem to get things done in Massachusetts. (I think his deceased wife, Myra, was more liberal.)
You don’t attend Limbaugh’s wedding, have Limbaugh attend Myra’s funeral, and have Rush as a guest in owner’s suite at Super Bowls - and somehow hold partisan left wing views. He’s also very patriotic and religious. Two strikes in the Dem party.
I would like to see some papers turn around and start backing America again.
Thanks. I’m sure that’s true.
That young woman is his girlfriend....40 years younger
Kraft married big money...and did well with it
Big lib though
Only a moderate to yankees
“It’s good to be the owner.”
Really and cavorts with a 40 years younger woman who he isn’t married to?
Very religious.....maybe by Berlusconni benchmark
I get the feeling if Jerry Jones were suddenly widowed, he'd pretty much do the same.
I get the feel in I would too God forbid ...widowed and all
Only 20 some things I could likely attract would be ones with dental issues..lol
Please Robert Kraft...buy it... you are still hated in Connecticut (next to Peter Karmanos) and you are a LIBERAL!!
