[UPDATE: The list that I’m using purports to be the top 100 newspapers by circulation. I’m not really using it as a resource – it doesn’t update often enough – but I had to use something and I’m sure that if it and I miss a high-circulation newspaper somebody will tell me.]
[ANOTHER UPDATE: Yes, yes, YES, the New York Observer flipped, too. It’s just not on the highest-circulation list I’m using. Sorry.]
Below are the newspapers that have endorsed Romney in 2012 that also endorsed Obama in 2008 (sorted in order of their ranking here). I’ll be updating this list as I and they go.
- Houston Chronicle: (endorsed Obama in 2008)
- Orlando Sentinel: (endorsed Obama in 2008)
- Fort-Worth Star-Telegram (endorsed Obama in 2008)
- The Tennessean (endorsed Obama in 2008)
I also expect a certain amount of snarling, bluster, and/or brassy nervousness from the Other Side over the list in question… especially as the list of switchers gets longer. Which it will.
PS: What’s that? Oh, yes, newspaper endorsements don’t have the luster that they once did. Then again: neither does Barack Obama.
