The police weren’t necessarily trying to get me out of the area — they were saying there could be another explosion. And that’s what really got to me. They started yellow-taping the area. They didn’t know what was going to happen. The sad thing was that these were spectators who were cheering on their loved ones coming over the finish line. I hate to say…you know…now we left our guard down…how are we going to find security for an event like this, which is so amazing to cover? And now it’s like, we’ve got to worry about all this again.

The New York Times Company purchased the Boston Globe for $1.1 billion back in 1993. It’s unknown why the Times is currently planning to offload the paper, which has been in circulation since 1872, though rumors that it would be sold have been circulating for some time now.

We’ve never had The Boston Globe have its own front door in the digital space. It’s always been integrated with Boston.com. This was an opportunity to build something brand-new and to have it front and center and really do justice to the brand promise The Boston Globe offers to its readers.
Boston Globe publisher Christopher M. Mayer • On the paper’s launch of its own Web site this morning — a paywall-laden one that smartly separates the company’s newspaper content from Boston.com content that might work better on the Web. Boston.com is paywall-free and still serves breaking news, blogs and the whole bit. Bostonglobe.com focuses on the newspaper itself. It’s an interesting separation and we’re curious to see how it works out for them. The Boston Globe’s parent, the New York Times Company, famously started up a successful paywall experiment for the mothership paper. (Quote from a paywall-laden article, but there’s free registration for the next couple weeks; the source article links to the free Boston.com piece.) source (viafollow)
