Death watch, continued…

Looks like we can add Boston to the growing list of major cities in danger of becoming one-newspaper towns. It was disclosed that the New York Times Co., which owns the Boston Globe, has threatened to close the paper unless its unions make major concessions.

Granted, times are tough in the industry and management and unions needs to find common ground in order to survive. But it would be an absolute waste of a great institution to see the Globe … the No. 1 paper in the market, no less … shuttered over a union/management issue.
