Touche. But starting reporters at the Globe (13th in the country in terms of
total circulation numbers) don't even make $40k a year when hired. That's a
more fair comparison. I wouldn't be surprised if a reporter at the Herald
(39th in circ) is beginning at $31-33k.

And the Globe's "staff correspondents" (working out of the suburban bureaus,
without union protection I may add) start off at $30k or a tad below.
