Obama Endorsed by 10 of 11 CA Newspapers

An article by Donald Lathbury on The California Majority Report website pointed out that 10 of the largest 11 newspapers in California endorsed* Barack Obama.  The one holdout was the San Diego Union Tribune, which had not yet made an endorsement before Super Tuesday.  No big newspapers in California endorsed Hillary Clinton.

California newspapers which endorsed Obama (in order of circulation from largest to smallest) were: the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Orange County Register, the Sacramento Bee, the San Jose Mercury News, the Contra Costa Times, the Riverside Press Enterprise, the Los Angeles Daily News, the Fresno Bee,  and La Opinión.  The last is the largest Spanish language newspaper in California and could give Obama a boost amongst Latino voters in its home town, Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Times concluded its endorsement with the following eloquent metaphor: “Clinton is an essay, solid and reasoned; Obama is a poem, lyric and filled with possibility.”

*The Orange County Register did not actually endorse Obama, but did give him a much more favorable assessement than the one it gave Hillary Clinton.
