UPDATE (1/1/16): The Boston Globe is on Day 5 now of its non-delivery of newspapers to many. The publication has finally come out of hiding and commented on the issues, to its own reporter, here.
The Boston Globe seems to be subconsciously moving to an online-only publication model as it struggles to distribute papers this week following a switch to a new delivery vendor.
While some on social media are cheekily suggesting the Globe put its Spotlight investigative team on this story, the Globe wasn’t saying much beyond posting an apology on its website and publishing a list of communities where delays can be expected. Wellesley is among them.
As journalists, we feel somewhat obligated to subscribe to local newspapers, perhaps in an act of charity. When we called today to find out what was up, the Globe’s automated system said hold times were approximately… 1 hour.
