BOSTON (AP) — In a story Aug. 5, The Associated Press reported that John Henry's winning $70 million bid to buy the Boston Globe, the Boston Metro and the Telegram & Gazette in Worcester was a fraction of the $1.1 billion the New York Times Co. paid 20 years ago. The story should have specified that the New York Times Co. paid $1.1 billion for the Globe alone. The Times obtained the Metro and Telegram & Gazette later.
