A few weeks ago, Seascraper asked How is the Globe fighting the web. Today’s low blow is a good example. This piece is filled with innuendo, lies-by-omission, and flagrantly obvious bias. That’s ignoring the pandering. I guess that Craig Newmark (founder of Craigslist) is right up there next to Larry Flynt in the pantheon of porno sleazebags. Right?
Wrong. The Globe ran personals for years. The Phoenix runs content as racy as anything in Craigslist.
This piece is nothing more than a kick in the groin. Like a piece of badly done pornography, it demeans the writer (Megan Woolhouse), it demeans the Globe, and it demeans every reader.
The sooner the Globe dies, the sooner we’ll see what emerges next. I’d much rather focus on inventing ways to sustain reasonable incomes for the few good journalists that are left on Morrisey Boulevard than to jump through hoops attempting to revive this flat-lined corpse.
