Bay State Banner hits Globe in front-page retort

In an unsigned open letter published this week, the Bay State Banner said the Globe “impugned the integrity” of the weekly newspaper by revealing details of its default on a pair of loans from an arm of the Boston Redevelopment Authority and raising questions about the black-owned publication’s finances in the broader context of the newspaper industry’s struggles.

“Now it seems the Globe intends to be the first to write the Banner’s obituary with the strategy of defaming the publisher to ensure that the Banner’s demise ensues,” the Banner said in the letter.
