Be sure to stop supporting these guys and their horrible choice. Not surprised by some of them, they aren’t even hiding their support anymore. The Conservative ones are the real shocker.
BI has the full details:
This presidential election may have the most lopsided batch of newspaper endorsements the US has ever seen.
While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered the support of a long list of editorial boards, her Republican rival Donald Trump hasn’t received any. Libertarian candidate GaryJohnson has six.
A number of conservative-leaning papers have even cautioned voters against putting Trump in office, and said they too are “with her.”
Trump did receive the endorsement of four major newspapers in the Republican primaries, but they have yet to double down on their support for the general election on November 8.
Clinton received over 80 newspaper endorsements during the Democratic primaries, and dozens of editorial boards have since reiterated their conviction that she should be the next president, not Trump, now that they know those are the two major-party options.
Some of the papers, including The Desert Sun and The Houston Chronicle, rarely endorse Democrats — but 2016 is no regular election cycle.
There are bound to be more endorsements as Election Day nears, but here’s what she has so far:
The New York Times: “Our endorsement is rooted in respect for her intellect, experience, toughness and courage over a career of almost continuous public service, often as the first or only woman in the arena.”

Los Angeles Times: “Perhaps her greatest strength is her pragmatism — her ability to build consensus and solve problems. As president, she would be flexible enough and experienced enough to cut across party lines and work productively with her political opponents.”

The Baltimore Sun: “One candidate stands in the broad tradition of American leadership that has made this the greatest, most powerful and most prosperous nation in history. The other would have us trade that legacy for a cult of personality. The choice is clear.”

The Dallas Morning News: “We don’t come to this decision easily. This newspaper has not recommended a Democrat for the nation’s highest office since before World War II — if you’re counting, that’s more than 75 years and nearly 20 elections.”

The Cincinnati Enquirer: “The Enquirer has supported Republicans for president for almost a century … But this is not a traditional race, and these are not traditional times. … We need a leader who will bring out the best in all Americans, not the worst.”

The Arizona Republic: “This year is different. The 2016 Republican candidate is not conservative and he is not qualified. That’s why, for the first time in our history, The Arizona Republic will support a Democrat for president.

Chicago Sun-Times: “Allow us, as well, a special shout-out to those who understand what a danger Trump represents but are cool to Clinton: A vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, a man who could not even pass a basic world geography test, is not a principled protest gesture. It is a retreat to the sidelines.”
