Editor and Publisher notes that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) has a significant lead over Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in newspaper endorsements — 121-42. At least 26 papers that supported President Bush in 2004 have moved to Obama, versus just four that supported Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) switching to McCain. “In California alone, the Obama-Biden ticket picked-up six newspapers that endorsed President Bush in 2004. He also gained a few papers, such as the Los Angeles Times and Cleveland’s Plain Dealer that did no[t] endorse either candidate in 2004.”

Rick Davis: Palin drives ‘liberal feminists’ crazy because she’s ‘attractive,’ ‘competent,’ and ‘happy.’ ›
