And Now For More Boston Globe Bashing - XLIV

A month or so after Wikileaks ripped off the fa├žade of 'objective journalism' as supposedly practiced by the Boston Globe and exposed collusion between the Boring Broadsheet and the Hillary Clinton campaign, Boston Globe editor Brian McGrory does his best attempt at damage control.
Hey all,

So the earth shook under us last week with Donald Trump’s stunning victory, raising all the questions you’ve heard and even asked about the inability (you spelt 'ignoring' wrong - ed) of the news media to see this coming. These are good questions, with no clear or clean answers, but what absolutely can’t be lost in our self-reflection is that we’re in a moment, an utterly pivotal moment, in which we matter more than ever (funny, your circulation numbers don't reflect it - ed) to our region and our loyal readership. It is not an overstatement to say that this is why we exist. And I don’t have even the slightest doubt that we will meet the challenge.
I do - want to put money on your ability to continue as a going concern, Brian? Say, Chapter 7 liquidation in five years?
To that end, I should say more publicly what I’ve told a lot of people in here privately over the past ten days: I’m intensely proud of our national and campaign coverage going back not just weeks and months, but years. You should be, too.
You were caught red handed colluding with a U.S. Presidential campaign. Are you Globies proud of that? Are you, Bruce Mo**?

Go read the rest of it if you want to be further insulted by this bow-tied bumkisser.
