Ratings and Reviews
Fan From Near and Far
I have been reading the Globe for about 60 years whether I lived in Boston, Maine, South Florida, Shemya, Alaska, Herzogenaurach, Germany, or my current home, Greenville, SC. Many times the paper was a day or a week old. It didn’t matter. The Globe is the best at covering local, regional, and national news on a daily basis. Sports columnists like Peter Gammons, Bob Ryan, and Dan Shaughnessy are gifts to a literate sports fan. The Spotlight team’s investigative reporting pulled back the curtain on despicable behavior by a powerful, entrenched institution. ( A shoutout to my BLS classmate Steve Kurkjian). Although I have lived away from Boston for more than 50 years, the Globe allows me to be a lifetime Bostonian.
Still great, but...
I love the Boston Globe and have read it every day for 45 years. I still don’t miss a day, even though I don’t live in Boston anymore. My one concern is that it increasingly seems determined to enter the culture wars, more as a participant than as an observer. I am not a habitual critic of the press, and I don’t look for liberal bias under every leaf. But I think the Globe’s news articles do tend to be slanted, and the selection of what to report or omit seems to reflect an agenda at times. In the opinion pages, liberal perspectives outnumber conservative ones by at least 4 to 1. Many columns are preachy and repetitive, more hysterical than thought-provoking. I hope the editorial board will occasionally self-reflect and remember that its more strident members do not hold a monopoly on truth and justice. Still, I love the paper and probably always will.
Great app, great reporting
First I want to emphasize how critical it is in this day and age to support quality reporting and the Boston Globe really stands out.
I am particularly impressed by the investigative reporting done by the Spotlight team well beyond their Pulitzer Prize series in abusé in the Catholic Church. The current report on the sad fate of Valedictorians is an eye opener.
The app itself makes access to the news easy. It should in fact send me more text alerts for articles! On an iPhone they are regrouped by source and are a nice incentive to check what’s happening.
