Boston Globe journalist reprimanded over blog posts
This journalist came under fire several years ago, if I'm not mistaken, for his biased stories on Apple Computer. According to this Boston Herald story on this not-so-independent journalist's latest claim to fame:
A Boston Globe reporter who covered aspects of the presidential campaign was rebuked by his editors after criticizing Sen. John F. Kerry [related, bio] and promoting President Bush [related, bio] on Internet Web logs.
Globe editor Martin Baron issued a statement yesterday saying technology reporter Hiawatha Bray had been told in November his postings were ``inappropriate and in violation of our standards.''
...Bray promoted many of the Swift Boat attacks on Kerry - some of which were proven false. He questioned his own paper's work, dismissing probes of Bush's National Guard service as ``innuendo.''
