After legal delays, John W. Henry has finalized his purchase of The Boston Globe and its related businesses, including BostonGlobe.com, Boston.com and the Worcester Telegram & Gazette newspaper and website.

According to Media Daily News, Henry will focus on a number of editorial refinements in addition to visual redesigns of The Boston Globe print and online products. “The Globe will place its emphasis on hard-hitting, investigative  accountability that readers can rely on… We will hold ourselves accountable for fairness, balance and fact-checking.” Perhaps recognizing editorial integrity comes at a price that readers must be willing to pay, Henry noted “I feel strongly that newspapers and their news sites are going to rely upon the  support of subscribers to a large extent in order to provide what readers want.”
