This is interesting...because normally anyone who attacks WBUR so directly 
is opening themselves up to "The Wrath of Jane".  Remember the "expose" on 
her in the Globe back in...1999 I think...and I think that was Mark's work 
as well, wasn't it?   I remember all of us at WBUR thought Jane got off 
light in that article, whereas all our friends who didn't work at WBUR were 
telling us "I never knew it was so bad...how do you stand working there?!?".

Anyways, according to Mark's report on the Jan.13th symposium...she seemed 
downright meek.   What gives?

BTW, tell me again why WGBH hasn't been dragged through the mud like WBUR 
has?  They air Morning Edition and All Things Considered, too....as well as 
being the host for the BBC's "The World"?    I know WGBH isn't thought of 
as "news-y" a station as WBUR but it seems they ought to be held to at 
least the comparable standards if not the same punishment.
