Boston Globe does “total hatchet job” on Scott Brown

Boston Globe does “total hatchet job” on Scott Brown

Even two Democrats call out The Globe for “totally inappropriate” bias

The Boston Globe decided to run profiles of Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren this week on the eve of the hotly contested election.

The Globe ran a glowing puff piece about Warren, a tribute to Warren’s progress in overcoming obstacles real and imagined (mostly imagined, as anyone paying attention knows).  The write-up featured a warm, loving photo of Warren, her husband, and Golden Retriever:

The Globe could not help but mention Warren’s Cherokee controversy, as well as the bizarre claim by Warren that she was the first nursing mother to take the New Jersey Bar exam, but mostly the Globe gave “profile in courage” treatment to Warren, as it has for months.

What did the Globe do for Brown’s profile?


The same author who tried in vain to cover-over Warren’s ethnic fraud for The Globe, penned a major piece titled Modeling years gave Scott Brown an early boost, which started as follows:

It was approaching midnight inside a throbbing Studio 54, New York City’s nightclub extra­ordinaire and nocturnal epicenter of excess in the 1980s. As bartenders naked to the waist filled goblets of champagne, club cofounder Steve Rubell, famous for plucking favored guests from the surging crowd outside, was showing off his latest “pick.”

His name was Scott Brown. But Rubell, who recognized the 22-year-old Massachusetts man, who had recently won Cosmopolitan magazine’s 1982 “America’s Sexiest Man” contest and posed nude for its centerfold, promptly dubbed him “the Cosmo boy.”

Included was a 10-photo spread:

Here’s how two Democrats (journalist and former Cambridge City Councilman Jim Braude and state senate candidate Mara Dolan) and described it in this clip:

Braude: Speaking of, well, it’s women we’ll get to in a minute. Did you see the Globe front page story about Scott Brown as a model at 22 today?

Dolan: I saw it, didn’t read the whole article.

Braude: Well I read the whole article and looked through all the pictures and virtually everyone with whom I’ve spoken says that it was a total hatchet job. Not the quality of the writing, that Sally Jacobs great writer, did a great job.

Why with thirteen days to go do we have a story about him as a model, including quotes from him like about how he likes to satisfy women. He has the heavy [inaudible]. This is from what he said thirty years ago.  He didn’t commit a crime thirty years ago. He was a young man, who was really good looking and making money. Is that not totally inappropriate?

Dolan: Yeah. It’s totally inappropriate. It shouldn’t be held against him that he was a model. There’s nothing wrong with that.

Braude: Ok, well, fine. I thought there was a longer discussion.

The Globe does everything it can to excuse Elizabeth Warren’s history of false representations as to her ancestry, practicing law without a license, representing big corporations even when contrary to the interests of the little guys Warren champions, and proclivity for self-aggrandizement which reaches clinical levels.

The Globe’s latest hatchet job for this fake Indian is just another example of why trust in the mainstream media is at an all time low.

I don’t know, posting those pics of Scott Brown could have some unintended consequences. To quote R.S. McCain IYKWIMAITTYD 😉

    You got it. It’s like the message is: “Don’t vote for him, he’s attractive.” Say what?

        Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!

        We have a winner!!!!!

        Mary Sue, that is so funny, I am going to show it to my wife. She is going to crack up.

        Well done, well done.

    LOL! I heard of a study that said women vote with their hormones. Let’s hope that it’s correct and the women seeing that vote for Brown in huge numbers.

Two words: eye candy.

(Really. Not every woman in MA can ignore that.)

Like so many others, I am sick of the media manipulation. There is a positive to this, though which is I have become much better at recognizing media bias. As for Scott Brown’s photo spread, which I suspect many will view and then wonder what it has to do with his reelection, I’ll just comment that I am very thankful that they did not have a similar photo spread of Fauxcahontas. (That name just cracks me up!)

    There isn’t enough fire water to make that happen!

      Jack The Ripper in reply to Dimsdale. | October 25, 2012 at 5:50 pm

      Actually, the Brown Campaign should continue to pursue a dual-track strategy:

      1) Show his good side, and

      2) Let Elizabeth Warren’s own words, own voice, own photos, and own videos speak for her. I have yet to see a photo of her that was anything more than somewhat flattering.

      Lots of fire water, however, is still a good idea. Woof!

The Globe is owned by the NYTimes. What would you expect? They are going down the same toilet, and it cannot happen soon enough.

You know the bias is bad when liberals like Braude are commenting on it.

In the “Liz” pic she is telling her husband “Maybe I can get people to believe that you are a Big Chief.”

From within the cocoon, that probably seemed like KILLER smart.

Thing is, the cocoon makes you stupid.

NOBODY wants to see Lyin’ Lizzy with her top off…!!! Her poor Golden would drop dead in its tracks!

The Globe is a sick institution. No if, ands or buts about it. The Globe probably is the worst of the MSM (if they can even still be called that).

They are deeply out ouf touch with the real world, and deeply biased. Now that the Globe is running out of money, it is even worse. Many of the ‘journalists’ are trust fund babies that do not even need a salary – so they spout whatever leftist dogma they want. No accountablity at all.

Best thing to say, is that the readership is small and shrinking, and unlike the NYT, the Globe does not dictate an agenda to the televsion/radio media. The Boston TV/Radio media does not rely on Globe reporting to develop stories, for the most part — so the Globe influence is waning.

Please recall this about the Globe and Brown. (And someone please correct me on the details) Two days before the last election, the Globe published a poll saying that Coakley was somehting like 15 points ahead of Brown. No other press outlet had a similar poll. The poll was designed to disuade Brown voters from coming out to the polls. It was one of the worst efforts by the press to swing an election I have seen. It has gone largely uninvestigated.

The GLOBE is a wing of the Progressive Party. It is for progessive causes and progressive candidates and will go out of its way to protect progressives and go even father to defame and marginalize Republicans.

I can’t wait for it to go financially bankrupt (to match its moral bankuptcy).

That 10-photo spread calls for some early voting.

Other works of this particular Boston Globe writer, Sally H. Jacobs, includes ‘The Other Barack.’

Sally H. Jacobs’ picture is shown with her piece ‘The Curse’ as well:

Since this is a SECOND Globe article here, let me repeat my still-appropriate comment:

FYI: the Boston Globe is a leftist Piece of “bill-maher” that is 100% owned by the “all the news that’s fit to fake” New York Times, which is 100% owned by the lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist party.

From the dictionary of real Americans:
“bill-maher” = a sub-adolescent spewing forth vile hatred at everyone who is NOT a blithering idiot socialist extremist using all the expletives, insults and misogynist slurs that were ever invented. The projectile vomit this leftist buffoon throws out as “humor” is something that only another lunatic-left extremist can enjoy. Synonyms for “bill-maher” = a**-hole, excrement, Rev. “God Damn America” wright.

    Globe is far worse than NYT. Hard to fathom, but true.

    NYT has been trying to sell Globe for years. I do not think they ae co-managed or work in tandem.

Most working Democrats in Massachusetts are not extremists. I know this because I have lived and worked in the Boston area for over three decades.

The Globe must be privy to some real damning inside polling to go this far out on a left-wing limb.

As others have commented, this Boston Globe piece is so far out there it’s seriously begging for unintended consequences.

This writer Sally Jacobs is about as Über-Left as it gets and it’s likely that is the reason she was hired in the first place.

If I were on the board of directors, the editor in charge of her would have some serious explaining to do as to their business judgement.

The Globe can go under and this century is no longer the domain of daily print media.

Conservatives must buy some of these newspapers. Nothing would be more helpful to society and more demoralizing to Leftism than to occupy and transform, say, a Boston Globe. The NY Times would be the supreme conquest.

    Reticulator in reply to raven. | October 25, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    It’s not enough for conservatives to own them. They all go bad unless we institute these reforms:

    1) Any journalist who accepts or acknowledges an award from his peers is dismissed immediately.

    2) Any journalist who is found to have attended journalism school is dismissed immediately and barred from future employment.

‘Inappropriate bias??’ When the @#$% is it appropriate?!

What a couple of idiots!

Jack The Ripper | October 25, 2012 at 5:47 pm

And they wonder why they are going bankrupt and out of business.

They have Wrecked their Franchises.

People don’t want to pay for stuff they can get for free, especially if the stuff is so transparently false or biased.

Fox News and the Internet are kicking their asses and they wonder why.

Here’s a Piece of Advice for liberal reporters, journalists, opinion writers and editors:

Rule No. 1 – When you are in a hole, stop digging.

Rule No. 2 – Never underestimate the wisdom of crowds, particularly if empowered with fast, efficient and cheap communication tools. [You can’t fool all the people all of the time. We smuggled copiers into the Soviet Union. Radio Free Europe. Etc.]

Just another example of female chauvinism going on among our lady commenters, oo-ing and ah-ing over Mr. Brown. I, for one, am tired of men being seen as nothing more than a piece of meat that can rake leaves and take out the garbage. My wife wears me on the end of her arm like some boy-toy piece of sparkling meat jewelry to show off to her friends and everyone else. Well, that demeans me, and dangit, I’m not taking it any more.

There…… I’ve just removed my truss and BURNED it.

It never fails. Liberal journalists, reporters, columnists, opinion makers, bloggers, or what have you *all* look rather ridiculous with their heads up their a$$e$. The damage that they are doing to their brains is incalculable.

What a treat. I now own an iPad &can join the cafe crowd sitting in longe chairs using free Internet.

I have a large mocha & 2 bagels Blueberry $plain with nocreme cheese in front of me.

My first viewing this morning is a rather attractiive shot of a faintly familiar man. of course I read the article NOT.

They must think we’ve forgotten in the couple years since the special election that the best (and most successful) way to combat that nonsense is by embracing it. Remember “Hottie McAwesome” (think it was coined over at HillBuzz) and how well that neutralized the crazy? Time to bring that back.

Dizzy Lizzy , has no boobies , hence her “Globes” are flat. Silly Sally ,did a job on Scottie , when she squat over the ” B Globe” & shat. . . I call that an appropriate use for a “Global” resource.

do the folks at the globe understand anything about imagery?? have they ever heard of the nixon-kennedy debates?
not that i would base my vote soley on appearances, but if i had to and i was given the choice between the shriveled-up old granny on a park bench and the young, virile, well-toned, hottie-with-nothing-to-hide…well…i’m secure enough in my own masculinity, if you know what i mean.

Let’s ask Lena Dunham whose lever she wants to pull.

TeaPartyPatriot4ever | October 26, 2012 at 12:04 am

The picture of Elizabeth Warren on the park bench with her husband and dog remind me of the serene picture of Hitler with his dog and mistress.. When you want to make the perception of a loving adoring good person, that’s how you do it..

But the images are obviously misleading for a purpose and reason.. The effects / results of their actions as people in position of power and authority, cannot be concealed within a picture of serenity and innocence.. But they will always try..

You see?

Do you see how correct what I wrote above is?

New York Times misses earnings target, share tumble.

Maybe their earnings target was too high, but how many times has the NYT missed its revenue targets by more than a smidge in the third quarter of a presidential election year?

They hit $449MM instead of $479MM. Ooops! That is over 6 percent. Almost 7 percent.

[Don’t you wish that cannibal NYC cop had gotten to Maureen Dowd before he was captured? Krugman, too. Sure, the cop was fantasizing about cooking only women, but I bet someone somewhere has written that “Paul Krugman is such a cu47.”]

    Jack, the most astounding thing in that article…and the most puzzling…is that the NY Times earned $449 million. Who knew there were that many bird cages?

“Hatchet” job seems so…generic. I can’t help but think that the term “tomahawk” would be much more appropriate.
