I probably shouldn’t say this, but I’m not a fan of political endorsements. And it’s that time of year. I know why we do it. Our business is to cover the community. As a member of that community, we should say who we believe would best lead. But in age where bitter partisanship is the coin of the realm, and newpapers are considered bias toward one side or the other, I don’t think most people get that there is a news side and opinion side. I have never been told we should write stories that bolster a particular candidate, and I have never (well, except for that once) tried to influence our op-eds. But I don’t think people see the distinction or how serious we take it. And in the end, I think endorsements are overrated. Of course, no has really asked me what I think so…I’m just going to keep this between us.
