http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...mney-President



Not familiar with this outfit. Is it a minority of right-leaning or what?

Depends on the paper. Sometimes it's a straight vote of the editorial board. Sometimes the owner and/or publisher dictates the endorsement. (In this case it's customary for the owner and/or publisher to swear up and down that he does no such thing.) Often a paper's own financial interests are the determining factor. If a paper sells more product to a liberal audience, by and large, then it just might decide that endorsing a conservative and pissing off the larger fraction of their customer base is probably not a good idea. Some newspapers are cemented in a viewpoint that makes discussion a waste of time.

News is the right leaning paper, Free-Press is the socialist paper in Detroit. No surprise here.

So in essence, their endorsement is more to shore up their customer base then it is to provide political support?

Never, ever forget to follow the money.

Maybe their motives are pure. I don't know these guys.

Get the hell off Drudge pete, nothing to see here.
This is the response from the person that started a thread a few months back to complain that responses to threads were rude and weren't discussing the topic.

Yes, there is a big chance that endorsement will really sway the vote in Detroit.
