The creator of the Fox News Channel has a paper that endorses a Republican? Wow. That is surprising.

Not surprising, really.

Just like the Boston Globe, SF Chronicle, LA Times, and Chicago Trib will endorse Obama.

IMHO, newspapers shouldn't endorse anyone either way, but they do.

Agreed.

Report the ****ing news and stop trying to make it.

Because there are too many lemmings in the American public who are swayed by them. Not a lot....but even 1 or 2% is too much, IMHO.

Why the hell are you going to pimp a newspaper endorsement after the Republicans spent their whole convention trashing the media?

I will let newspapers endorse as long as Churches with their tax free status can endorse.

Neither should, as Kotter pointed out about newspapers. But if we're talking about institutions that can endorse, I'm more fine with newspapers than tax-free religious institutions.

Interesting you should bring that up....churches can have their tax exempt status taken away for partisan activities. I'm fine with that. Although libs should be careful what they wish for on that note, given the political activities of liberal churches that don't seem to garner the same attention in the media as conservative churches who seemingly blurr the line.

I also think if the FCC had some incentives/coercive measures to keep the media "non-partisan" as well...that might be a good thing too.

:D

Did Kotter just endorse a new "fairness doctrine"?

OMG!

Well, I haven't seen any church actually have their status revoked. Am I missing an example?

But otherwise, I agree with you about the principle of keeping things non-partisan ESPECIALLY if they're TAX FREE.

There have been some instances, IIRC; it's not common, but it's happened I think.

The instance that comes to mind where no action was taken was that archbishop telling people they shouldn't vote for Kerry because he was pro-choice. That, in my mind, is exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about. He said everything except "We the Catholic Church endorse Bush".

Maybe it's just me, but it seems so quaint that:

1) There are still newspapers.

2) They still endorse candidates.
