A tally of newspaper endorsements for president
I’ll settle for a 5-4 advantage for now given the composition of our largely failed media establishment.
According to a tally of the top 100 newspapers by circulation by the American Presidency Project, Mitt Romney has collected five endorsements so far, and Obama has four. (The American Presidency Project is a nonpartisan online database of presidential messages, papers, documents, and other information.)
Romney’s newspaper supporters: The Dallas Morning News, The Las Vegas Review-Journal, The Orlando Sentinel, The Omaha World-Herald, and The [Nashville] Tennessean. Their total circulation is 1,053,356. Two of Romney’s backers – the Orlando and Nashville newspapers – endorsed Obama four years ago.
