The Boston Globe today runs an “Editor’s Note” saying that Ariel Ayanna, whose family was the subject of a feel-good story about people trying to get by with less money, “never meant to suggest” that he isn’t looking for a job.
It will be interesting to see if this is the end of it.
Update: And, no, that wasn’t the end of it. The Ayannas have posted a blog item taking issue with both the Editor’s Note and with a letter to the editor that they submitted and then retracted because of proposed cuts that they say eliminated most of their criticism of the Globe.
“I guess I was pretty naive to think I could express myself accurately and without censorship,” writes Amiri Ayanna.
My offer for the Globe to respond here remains on the table.
