UPDATE: Herald stands by story, calling it "not only excellent, but important, leading as it did to a Department of Corrections investigation and certain reform measures."
Hnasko addresses an open tweet to the Tab:
I followed your advice and I was 2 hours late to work!
Part of the effort to try to convince WGBH to drop David Koch as a trustee over his stand on climate change.
The Boston Business Journal reports.
The Boston Business Journal interviews Charlie Kravetz, WBUR general manager.
Poynter posts the memo from Globe editor Brian McGrory. Most immediate impact: You'll be able to read up to 10 Globe stories a month before being hit up for a subscription. Also announced: A bunch of staff changes and additions for the Globe's new Catholic and high-tech sites.
Dan Kennedy has some thoughts on what it means.
WBZ has hired former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis to provide analysis on security on stories such as the trial of the living Tsarnaev brother and the running of the Marathon.
Andrew Teman illustrates the brutal and short life of a Globe Direct bag, at least the ones that are lobbed at the houses of people who care what their streets look like.
We'd gone several weeks without a Globe Direct dropping landing on our property, and were feeling pretty good about that. But when I opened the front door today, there was one of the sucky Globe Direct bags somehow perched on one of the railings along our front steps.
The Boston Business Journal reports the hemorrhaging hyperlocal network has rehired the Framingham Patch editor it laid off along with most of its other editors a few weeks ago.
Ed. note: Over the past couple of weeks, I've unsubscribed from all the Boston-area Patch Twitter feeds I'd been following. Was getting annoying seeing the same exact headlines about horrible California murders from these "local" sites.
Boston Magazine does an interview through e-mail with John Henry on his thoughts on saving the Globe and journalism. Among other things, he acknowledges plans to sell the Globe's 16 acres on Morrissey Boulevard, move the Globe to "a smaller, more efficient and modern facility in the heart of the city."
Also noteworthy: More details on Henry's specific plans for the Globe and boston.com, including a boston.com redo to make it more like a combination of Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. And check out the role Mike Barnicle played in one recent Globe hire.
Nobody wants to say, but whatever it was, it was enough to get the company to pull all its ads off WEEI.
Every storm now, Steve Cooper tries to up the ante of just what stunt he'll pull to show us that he is, in fact, braving the elements. Standing on the top of a giant heap of snow? That's so last storm. Angela captured him today standing atop a snow mound, in a backhoe.
The Cambridge City Council on Monday considers a proposal to have the city manager try to get the Globe to stop littering the streets with those Globe Direct circulars that many residents never asked for in the first place.
While most of her outdoor colleagues were busy with rulers and snow brushes and snowballs this morning, WCVB's Antoinette Antonio just stood in the snow and reported what she saw around her.
Antoinio, who arrived in Boston a few months ago from Albuquerque, explains her reticence to get up close and personal with the white stuff:
Why ... you already know what snow feels like don't you? Next you'll want me to pull out a ruler and/or make a snow angel? I'd never hear the end of it from @LokayWCVB
The City Council has stepped into a contract dispute between the Weather Channel and DirectTV, urging the two companies to settle a contract dispute that is frustrating DirectTV subscribers who would rather watch Jim Cantore than Harvey Leonard or Pete Bouchard.
The council yesterday unanimously approved a resolution by at-large Councilor Steve Murphy calling for a prompt end to the dispute.
Murphy called the Weather Channel "an invaluable national and local service" that "enables private citizens to make important decisions regarding their work, travel and recreation plans."
