Peter Gammons on his new site Gammons Daily has the following report:
Sources say the New York Times Corporation has chosen John Henry as the new owner of the Boston Globe.
If the source is correct, it makes sports coverage in this town a whole lot more complicated, and pretty much all coverage of the Red Sox will be viewed as coming from a certain vantage point. Also, coverage of the other local teams will also be in question as to whether it is hurting or helping the aims of the owner and his other investment.
Will we also see coverage of Liverpool FC and Roush Fenway Racing? Will LeBron James suddenly get more positive coverage?
This whole situation should be interesting to watch going forward.
