Contrasts in Journalism

As the newspapers roll out their endorsements, it's interesting to see who they pick and, especially with the Cincinnati Enquirer, how they pick. The Fishwarp should have ben given some sort of award for twisting, writhing, backpedalling endorsement of John Cranley for mayor. Their endorsements this year have almost been on a par and their endorsement of Mitch McConnell is right in there.
Meanwhile, The Lexington Herald Leader is pretty darn clear in theier endorsement of Alison Lundergan Grimes and so is the Louisville Courier Journal.
The Fshwarp is the paper of record for a chunk of Kentucky, so it's not like they should keep their mouth shut but the timidity of their endorsement contrasted against the 2 Kentucky papers (one also a Gannett paper) is striking.
