After some public shaming, the Boston Globe issued a correction Saturday in its “for the record” section expressing “regret” for a column’s “mischaracterization” of The Daily Wire.

“Because of a reporting error, the @Large column in today’s Arts section, which is printed in advance, mischaracterizes the conservative media outlet The Daily Wire.” The correction reads, “Its founder, Ben Shapiro, has spoken out against the alt-right. The Globe regrets the error.”
The correction follows backlash online after the Globe published a column ripping Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for defending his platform’s pro-free speech policies in front of Congress that goes out of its way to take an egregious shot at The Daily Wire — which the author describes as a “white supremacist-adjacent alt-right outpost.”
“Most recently we’ve seen Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stammering before a congressional committee as he tried to shove his proprietary cryptocurrency, Libra, into reality, but ended up hitting a wall as committee members grilled him over the company’s ‘say whatever’ to political advertising,” the hit-piece reads. “In response, we saw him launch a repurposed ‘News’ section that sets up partnerships between the networks and a ‘wide range’ of publishers (including white supremacist-adjacent alt-right outposts like The Daily Wire — because … news?).”
A study by the Anti-Defamation League found that Shapiro was the number one target of the Alt-Right in 2016. The Daily Wire was one of the first outlets on the right to come out in full-throated condemnation of the Alt-Right, publishing a piece in September 2016 unequivocally disavowing the racist and anti-Semitic movement (read: “An Actual Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right: 8 Things You Need To Know”) and consistently criticizing the movement and its supporters in its reports and op-eds.
Among those who slammed the Globe for the shameless smear was Daily Wire podcast host and columnist Matt Walsh.
“Boston Globe calls the Daily Wire an ‘alt-right outpost.’ Meanwhile the alt-right despises everyone who works at the Daily Wire, has targeted all of us with harassment and hate mail, and is planning to sabotage our events. [Boston Globe] needs to delete this bullsh** and apologize,” wrote Walsh in a pair of tweets. “Before you call any of us alt-right, why don’t you idiots actually ask the alt-right if we’re on their team. They’ll tell you, emphatically, no.”
