    Exclamation NH Union Leader breaks 100 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson

    But the $#@!s at the Leader could not endorse Ron Paul.


    N.H. Union Leader rejects Trump, breaks century-long streak of endorsing GOP nominee

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...g-gop-nominee/

    This has been coming since Joe McQuaid likened Donald Trump to the movie character Biff from "Back to the Future," and now it's official: The Union Leader of Manchester, N.H., has refused to endorse the Republican presidential nominee for the first time in a century. The Granite State's largest newspaper is backing Libertarian Gary Johnson and running mate Bill Weld instead, writing that "in today’s dark times, they are a bright light of hope and reason."

    McQuaid, the paper's publisher, ignited a memorable feud with Trump in December, when he slammed the real estate mogul in a front-page editorial that included the comparison to the bullying Biff.

    "Trump has shown himself to be a crude blowhard with no clear political philosophy and no deeper understanding of the important and serious role of President of the United States than one of the goons he lets rough up protesters in his crowds," McQuaid wrote at the time.

    Trump returned fire at a rally in Nashua the same day, calling McQuaid a "lowlife" and a "sleaze bag."

    As long as there are Boomers, print media will still matter.
    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    If RP was selected at the RNC, you don't think they would have endorsed him?

    Much better things come from NH than NY.

    That's true.

    Interestingly enough, this is Gary's third newspaper endorsement, after the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Winston-Salem Journal. This list is interesting. It shows Gary and Clinton close to each other in the number of newspaper endorsements. None are listed for Trump.
