What The Globe's Suspension Of Kevin Cullen Means For Boston Journalism07:53

This article is more than 2 years old.

The Boston Globe suspended columnist Kevin Cullen at the end of last week, for three months without pay, after two investigations reviewed his work and found he likely fabricated some anecdotes he'd shared in interviews and writings after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. Cullen has been on paid leave since April of this year, when sports station WEEI noted inconsistencies in Cullen's work.
