Editor’s note from Sunday’s Boston Globe:
A May 24 story about a protest against an Israeli ambassador’s commencement speech at Brandeis University was written by a part-time correspondent who failed to disclose that he had previously editorialized in personal Internet posts against Israeli policy toward Palestinians. Globe editors learned of those posts while conducting an internal review of the Brandeis coverage. The correspondent’s failure to disclose a conflict violated Globe policy, and he should not have been assigned to cover the event. The story failed to include coverage of the substance of the remarks made by Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, and made no mention of an electronic petition supporting his appearance.
And here’s the New Republic’s Marty Peretz back then about the Globe’s persistent anti-Israel bias.
Nothing yet from Peretz on the Globe Editor’s note.
But inquiring minds want to know.
