Freedom Will Conquer Racism
that Top Managers at Globe are Gay Activists
There has been persistent talk across the state that three of the top news managers at the Boston Globe are gay activists.
Not wanting to deal in rumors, but being aware of the fact that the Globe has been the main enemy of the Protection of Marriage Amendment, MassNews decided to ask the managers themselves.
Oliver tried Editor Martin Baron first. He got through to him directly after a couple of tries. He asked if the rumors were true that Baron is gay. "He sort of laughed and asked me why I want to know. I said because of the Globe's editorial positions. He said, 'I am not in charge of the editorials, but the news coverage.' Before I could get out another word, he quickly said, 'Anyway, it's a stupid question, go away, thanks.' Then he hung up."
Oliver talked next with Helen Donovan. "I asked Donovan in the interest of disclosure if she was gay. She said she was not going to discuss her personal life. I asked about other editorial personnel. She thought that was funny, but said there is no reason to discuss their personal lives. I asked if she didn't want to at least say no, she is not a lesbian. But she wouldn't say.
I left several messages with them and talked to one,
but they have not returned my calls."
