I have mentioned many times that America would be in much better shape if McCain had won.

With 10 days to go before the 2012 election, 61 daily and 28 weekly or twice-weekly papers have endorsed Obama; 91 daily and 27 weekly newspapers have endorsed Romney.

Total circulation of the newspapers endorsing Obama: 12.8 million
Total for Romney: 7.5 million

So much for Swamps BS about newspapers and endorsements.

There is always someone looking at something some other way.

NYT. Obama
Mercury News. Obama
LA Times. Obama
Washington Post. Obama

All the big papers in America and they are all for Obama.

America is 50/50, but only about 1 out of 3 papers are for Romney.

Ah, now I understand why Swamp supports Romney/Ryan...in Swampland 89 > 116. Furthermore 116 is 1/3 of 205. So naturally the math behind the R/R economic "plan" rhetoric makes sense to him.

Good golly Swamp...who keeps track of your money and taxes for you?

The number of hick papers you found that endorse Romney are irrelevant. The number of readers are.

12.8 million and 7.5 million.

About 1 in 3.

Now could you REALLY not fgure this out or did you think you could sneak an attack comment past me and get away with it...let the public decide.

YOU SAID  <<America is 50/50, but only about 1 out of 3 papers are for Romney.>>

Go ahead and walk back your previous statement. I did not try to sneak anything past you. I took you to mean what you said. Are you saying that you lied?

Surely you are not suggesting that newspapers should poll their readers and issue endorsements based on the results? Newspapers are businesses just like anything else, and the owners and editorial boards are free to speak their minds. If readers don't like it, they don't have to buy the paper...just like any other business.

Why do you hate freedom and choice and free speech in America, Swamp?

The issue is why would newspapers over and over support the Democrats in large numbers, when in reality the issue is usually 50/50?

You cannot avoid the bias issue. It is always there, year after year.

Liberals hire other liberals to run the papers.

could it be because well-read people (i.e. intelligent) tend to skew non-conservative?

Just say you were wrong and be done with it.

And you are pathologically incapable of admitting to being wrong. As well all know.

Here is a question for you...do you hope the federal government responds well to Hurricane Sandy?

I do not think this is the cause at all.  It's what the liberals want to believe, but while people with college degrees tend to lean liberal there isn't any meaningful tie specifically to intelligence (IE rates amongst people with and without degrees seem to be independent of IQ).

I admitted that was a mistake and clarified my position that the people reached was 1 of 3.

So do you see that same thing happening year after year as a sign of bias?
