A Matter Of Opinion

Endorsement Relevance

Commenter Diana Davies wrote in the comment section below our endorsements:

Without agreeing or disagreeing with the above choices, the editorial board might want to take a look at their thought processes and relevance as endorsers.
One of the ways you can bring your newspaper into 2008 is to get over yourselves.

We often debate whether our editorial board should still endorse. Some newspapers have done away with the practice. It’s time-consuming. We interview almost every candidate. And the endorsements invariably make people unhappy with the newspaper. It doesn’t often win us friends, that’s for sure.

But we made the decision to endorse again in 2008. And they are posted here on our Web site. So Diana, thank you for beginning the discussion. Let it continue.

Should newspapers endorse candidates? Blog lines are open.
