24. Wycliff is not the bad guy
I organized a field trip to sit in on a Trib ed board meeting while in journalism school and on staff of student newspaper. Wycliff at the time was the editorial page editor (Dold's current position). He was quite gracious. Dold, on the other hand, acted like a petulant little boy. He questioned Wycliff's decision to let us sit in on the process and asked us directly what we were doing there. Although I do not have anything to back it up, I suspect Dold bullied his way into his current position and is pushing his own agenda rather than the paper's. Wycliff had a more global view. I daresay that if Wycliff was still chair of the editorial board, the Trib would have endorsed Kerry. That's just my 2 cents.

In regards to the endorsement, I was incredulous. Despite the Trib's conservative roots, I thought they would make an exception this time based on Kerry's rhetoric and Bush's record. Dold really screwed up, IMHO.
