A Globe first: Times copy hits paper

Shame on me for not noticing this earlier, but Wednesday, March 14 was a milestone of sorts: for the first time, the Globe published a story from the New York Times News Service--"Settled W. Bank lands private," by Steven Erlanger. The New York Times Co. purchased the Globe in 1993, so it's been a long time coming.

Meanwhile, today's Globe boasts two NYTNS stories: "Giuliani law firm has ties to Chavez," on A6, and "Clinton would keep some US troops in Iraq," on A7. (FYI, it also features pick-ups from the Baltimore Sun, the Washington Post, the LA Times, Bloomberg News, AP, and Reuters.)

"[The Times] is a really fine newspaper, and they do some fine journalism," Globe editor Marty Baron tells Media Log. "So we're likely to use the stories that represent especially strong enterprise and scoops--particularly anything that we're unlikely to find from the other wire services we have."
