Former Herald write Michael Gee delivers the goods on why people loath the Glob. Nice reading, extrapolate at will:

Any Bostonian also knows the character flaw that blights the Globe. In a word, snootiness. New England's largest if shrinking newspaper operates on the premise it is the benevolent, all-seeing colonial governor in these parts. We the readers are the childlike, backward, basically pathetic natives who need its constant guidance. The Globe knows best. Its shit don't stink and never will. From the "Curse of the Bambino" to running the funny papers for political balance rather than laughs, when the Globe fails, it does so with a patronizing smile at its customers.

1. Sibling Rivalry
Not being in Boston it may be risky going by things I've heard, but I've had the impression there is also a sort of sibling rivalry between the Globe and its owners at the New York Times. I've read speculation that the Globe wants to be a world-class paper like the NY Times, and thinks that bashing Kerry gives it an air of being impartial and reliable.
