It looks like just about all major newspapers this year will endorse Hillary Clinton as before the first debate words were spoken, papers in AZ, TX and OH joined the NYT and WaPo in backing the former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State.
In this story we hear some of those papers are getting backlash in the form of cancelled subscriptions, something few papers can afford.
It may be the gratuitous fawning over Mrs. Clinton right out of the gate, as well as an ethos this year that journalists have a higher calling than just reporting this year and should use their position to halt a particularly pernicious politcal force.
Most people are not going to cancel over an editorial as they have little impact anyway, but the overall lurch in coverage is annoying to readers who believe there is a rigged system in politics and media.
The essence of newspapers and broadcast outlets is mass appeal, but by becoming house organs for one side , they are becoming either obsolete or part of the growing niche media where everyone retreats to their intellectual corner for comfort and reenforcement.
