More Newspapers Endorse Kerry

More newspapers in critical battleground states endorsed John Kerry for President today. Papers in Florida (Orlando Sentinel), Wisconsin (Wausau Daily Herald), Iowa (Des Moines Register, Iowa City Press-Citizen), Maine (Bangor Daily News), and Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) came out against Bush's extreme policies.

They join the Washington Post, considered a national newspaper, today in demanding a new course for our country.

While these endorsements do not directly lead to a higher vote count for Kerry, they are important for shaping public opinion. People turn to newspapers for the information they use to base their decisions on how well politicians are doing. When newspapers endorse, undecided readers do not necessarily follow suit, but they are undoubtedly affected by the positive coverage.
