Liberals need to see how things work. For example, as a black Conservative, I get death threats from stupid black Liberals (silly Negroes) for daring to have an opinion that differs from theirs.
But newspapers are not personal. So when they make endorsements, they deserve what they get. And in the case of the Arizona Republic, their endorsement for the most crooked politician in history got them the equivalent of death threats: cancellations.
Newspapers should be objective, and represents the body politic by refraining from politics. Nevertheless, we’ve gotten used to papers making endorsements, and generally for Democrats. Such is the state of media.
According to The New York Times, editorial page editor of the Arizona Republic Phil Boas said this of their endorsement of crooked Hillary Clinton:
“We’re feeling the weight of our history.”
And soon they will feel the weight of impending doom.
As for their rationale for endorsing the most crooked candidate in presidential history, Boas commented:
GOP nominee Donald Trump “responds to criticism with the petulance of verbal spit wads.”
“That’s beneath our national dignity,” it continued.
“Trump’s long history of objectifying women and his demeaning comments about women during the campaign are not just good-old-boy gaffes,” the editorial added.
“They are evidence of deep character flaws. They are part of a pattern.”
I’m not sure how you write that with a straight face.
The readers have responded, cancelling their subscriptions with a vengeance. One report was cancellations are occurring every 10 minutes
Boas claims he has no regrets with the decision
“We’re never in unison on anything, but it wasn’t a difficult thing…It was the kind of thing that just evolved over time.”
Another thing revolves over time as well: bankruptcy.
I love that readers are voting with their pocketbooks! Kudos to Conservatives for hitting Liberals where it really hurts.
