Wonder why all the liberal rags are jumping ship?

Could it be that the businesses who buy advertising are hurting due to the horrible policy of government and the papers are suffering?


Could it be that circulation is WAY down due to customers rejecting the liberal drivel printed ?




Fishboy1, you nailed it. If 'why' is ever part of a question, the first rule to finding the answer is follow the money.

One of the facts is in a depression, recession or just down turn in the business, one of the things that large companies cut is advertisement $. This plus the lower amount of subscriptions will not prove good for any news outlets. So they may see the outcome of the presidents policy and know if it goes further it would be the demise of them. Of course the govt will bail the papers out buying them and making them part of the big govt. Hmmm nationalizing banks, news, factories I vaguely remember learning about some countries that the govt did this in the past. Anyone else remember this.

You're exactly right, the circulation of the Des Monies register is hurting due to their biased news reporting. Most refer to the Register as the "Demo Register" and stopped subscribing to it due to it's liberal views.

Since YOU put the link up I guess YOU have all the right to take only a portion of all the facts posted and use them to make your point.
I am simply using ALL the facts that show 100 years worth of endorsements from the Register (which is what we are ultimately talking about) to make mine.
I see what you are saying about the (R) endorsement. I"m willing to bet someone said that there had been 36 years of (R) endorsements through 1964 and that since a (D) got an endorsement that year it meant only good things. Looks as if they would be right but for some reason I doubt they were calling it a "Liberal Leftist Rag."


Wrong again.

This whole thing went way over you head and the ONLY reason you keep trying to say it was a CONTEST TO PICK THE WINNER is to help Obama.

The newspapper is NOT trying to pick a winner, it NEVER HAS tried to.

It was simply an ENDOSEMENT of Romney over Obama.

That newspapper has a lot of clot IN IOWA. like it or not but in Iowa that newspapper will change some people's minds.

YOU are trying to make it sound like something in Las Vages where they bet on who wins and who loses.

As for those other sats , I saw them 3 weeks ago when looking for something else. That means they are old now and with a week to go things change.

Not that it will make any difference since Illinois is solidly in The Kenyan's corner, but The Des Moines Register had some company on Sunday. Story at link.

On Sunday, the Chicago Daily Herald, the second largest daily newspaper in metropolitan Chicago, endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2012. In 2008, the Daily Herald endorsed hometown Senator Barack Obama for President:


In endorsing Illinois’ favorite son in 2008, we declared Obama “has a chance to be a great president.” We said, “He offers a new kind of politics. A politics that breaks down the old partisan walls. A politics that strives to bring people together. A politics of hope.”...

But four years later, where is the hope? Where is the confident swagger and leadership to uplift the nation’s mood?...

We endorse Romney because he, unlike Obama, understands that jobs are a creation of business, not of government. And that to encourage job growth, we need policies that incent business to grow and provide it with a stable environment for that growth.

In the end, we need moderation, not ideology, to facilitate an economic recovery. It is the central issue that affects us all.

As the voice of the suburbs, we always have embraced this free enterprise philosophy as a bedrock of our principles. We view ourselves as independent, fiscally conservative, socially progressive, an advocate always for individual liberty. The Mitt Romney who governed Massachusetts governed it for the most part on those core beliefs as well....

Mitt Romney for president.

Of all their endorsements they had a record of 14 to 9 where 14 of those they endorsed LOST.

Doesn't look like a good record IMO. Their picks haven't bode well in the past Republican OR Democrat.


Or, maybe it shows that they haven't been good at picking a winner. Maybe they're looking to change their image.
