Editorial Endorsements

November 8, 2016

Editorial endorsements

Not that anybody reads newspapers* anymore, but almost all major U.S. newspapers have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, even the Arizona Republic, which had never endorsed a Democrat in its 120-year history. The Miami Herald editorial is just 5 words long:

“Her. Not him. Enough said.”

Only 2 major papers endorsed Donald Trump: Jacksonville’s Florida Times-Union and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Okay, 3 newspapers if you count the National Enquirer.

Conservative moneybags Sheldon Adelson bought the Review Journal back in December, so it’s unsurprising the paper backs Trump.


“The very cozy relationship between Donald Trump and the National Enquirer,” Callum Borchers, Washington Post

*Kids: “Newspapers” are kinda like blogs printed on paper. What do you mean “What are blogs?”
