GateHouse vs. the Globe: Yes, it's on

About that Boston newspaper war I mentioned a couple days ago? Between GateHouse and the Globe?

Well, it just got a whole lot nastier.

As Dan Kennedy notes, there's a very important issue at play here:

Since is selling advertising on its "Your Town" pages, the argument is that the New York Times Co., which owns, is profiting from GateHouse's journalism. And even if is driving traffic to individual GateHouse stories, there's an argument to be made that "Your Town" is diminishing the value of GateHouse's "Wicked Local" home pages in those communities....
This is one of the most important stories in the newspaper business right now. It will be fascinating to see how it plays out.

Most definitely.
