Who broke the Walsh story? Or, DQM regrets the error.


In my latest Phoenix column, I argue (among other things) that it's not fair to accuse the Globe of liberal bias--and cite the Globe breaking and driving the Marian Walsh story as one bit of evidence.

The driving part holds: see this devastating piece on the email trail connected to Walsh's hiring, which I think demonstrates that the Globe is not, in fact, out to aid Democrats or facilitate patronage on Beacon Hill.

However, a DQM reader notes that the Globe didn't break the story. Both the Globe and the Herald reported it on March 13; I'm told State House News Service actually had it first, but haven't yet been able to confirm that. I apologize for the bad info.
