Was Boston Globe Victim of Setup?

That’s the suggestion in a complex tale surrounding a technology issue in Massachusetts. We’re hearing about this because of some digging by non-journalists, not because the Globe has pursued it very ardently (though the paper is responding, apparently somewhat belatedly, to queries).

This is a great example of the journalism-watchdog role that is so prominent in the citizen media movement. It’s no fun for the organizations that didn’t have to answer to anyone — except lawyers and shareholders — in the past, but it’s a healthy development in the long run.
