In a video produced by the newspaper, Globe Editor Kathleen Kingsbury says, “We listened to Donald Trump’s speeches, we scoured his website, we read his position papers, we considered who his advisors are and we did what the Globe does best: we reported it out and put it on the front page for our readers to see.”
It looks like it’s working. The move certainly got WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller’s attention.READ MORE: Hasty Pudding Theatricals Return With 'HPT 173: Ship Happens' In February
“The Boston Globe editorial board is doing exactly what an editorial board should be doing,” he said, “Taking a strong position, arguing for it forcefully and passionately and if you want people to listen, the fake front page is certainly creating a lot of buzz.”
The satirical headlines discuss deportations, riots and a plunging economy.
