Jurkowitz on Red Sox-Gate

I hate -Gate references, but Sox owner John Henry himself invokes it on page 3 of this piece on the Boston media's coverage of the Theo Epstein flap last week. The Phoenix's Mark Jurkowitz gives the Globe, whose parent company owns 17 percent of the team, a D in his report card. (See below for more on the ramifications of this conflict of interest between the business and editorial sides of the Globe.) Among the things Jurkowitz weighs in on was this column by Dan Shaughnessy, which some believe gave Epstein his final push out the door.

Here's a Boston Herald column that Jurkowitz references, by Tony Massarotti.
