The Globe and the Sox

In the wake of the Theo Epstein story, the Boston Globe's ombudsman weighs in today on the "challenges" the paper faces in its coverage of the Red Sox, considering the fact the parent New York Times Co. holds a 17 percent stake in the team. ''We're uncomfortable with the relationship, but that's never been a factor in our coverage of the Red Sox," sports editor Joe Sullivan said. ''I challenge anyone to say we don't cover the team aggressively." But ombudsman Richard Chacon says the ownership issue does create some problems. "My review of the Sox coverage began weeks ago," he writes, "but the Epstein story offers fresh examples of the challenges the Globe faces in readers' perceptions."
