Earlier today, I talked up Brian McGrory's piece on embattled Lawrence mayor William Lantigua, while simultaneously urging the Globe to discuss Lantigua's profane tendencies in greater detail.
Now, though, I'm writing about a claim made in McGrory's piece--specifically, his suggestion that his interview with Lantigua was an exclusive.
Last week, on the "Beat the Press" installment of WGBH's "Greater Boston," I suggested that the Christian Science Monitor's transition to a web-based model--with a weekly print edition replacing the daily paper--had been eased by the CSM's religious affiliation. More specifically, I argued that Christian Scientists* would be more likely to pay for a new weekly incarnation of the publication founded by Mary Baker Eddy than, say, your average Globe reader would be if the Globe made a similar leap.
I'll be joining Emily Rooney, Joe Sciacca, Callie Crossley, and my close personal friend Dan Kennedy tonight on Greater Boston's Beat the Press. Our topic? The Globe crisis, natch. Please tune in if you can.
