N.Y. Times to File Notice It Will Close Boston Globe


Gray Lady Down -

"From the moment the Times Co. purchased The Globe in 1993, it has treated New England's largest newspaper like a cheap whore," former Globe columnist Eileen McNamara wrote last month in the Herald.

"It pimped her out for profit during the booming 1990s and then pillaged her when times got tough. It closed her foreign bureaus and cheapened her coverage of everything from the fine arts to the hard sciences."

So it continues, from Denver to Detroit to Boston to New York - a main staple of news and one-way communication is vanishing.

Truly remarkable times.

  2. So will Amazon save the NY Times and other newspapers. The new larger Kindle for newspapers and textbooks. Or will the newspapers vanish before Kindle can take over the newspapers....
