Shrinking Globe

For more than a century, The Boston Globe has been known as the "paper of record" for New England. Now, the daily newspaper is shrinking. Citing declining circulation and advertising figures, the Globe recently reduced its newsroom staff by more than 30.

Such cutbacks are similar to measures at other newspapers across the country, but the Globe's cutbacks have local observers questioning the quality and direction of the paper.
