10. I imagine it was quite the editorial struggle for
the Dayton Daily News -- their circulation isn't enormous. They will, however, apparently endorse Kerry. I'm sure there will be a loathsome dissenting editorial, but at least the DDN keeps our subscription for the time being. They'd already endorsed some shitty local (GOP) pols who are incumbents, I was a little afraid they'd stick with their 'back the incumbent' policy and endorse Bush* -- but they didn't let us down this time. They are the Cox Publishing flagship paper, though -- I suspected when the Atlanta Journal Constitution (probably the largest circulation paper in the Cox hierarchy) endorsed Kerry, the DDN probably would, too. Don't know how others in the chain have gone, though the Austin-American Statesman seems a likely Kerry endorsement, and probably with less editorial push-me-pull-you than the Dayton and Atlanta papers.
