So speculates the Boston Business Journal, which throws out a few other names as possible buyers--including Herald owner Pat Purcell and Jack Connors, chair of Partners HealthCare's board of trustees.
A week or two ago, after hearing that Connors was still interested in the paper, I called his office to see if the rumor was legit.
That's the most important point of this Globe business update. If Connors is telling the truth, then the Financial Times got it wrong.
The second most important point is Herald publisher Pat Purcell's statement that he, too, is uninterested in the Globe.
Please note that multiple versions of the FT story have appeared in the past few days.
