    Its editorial positions have taken both liberal and conservative stances: it has steadfastly supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq, warmed to President George W. Bush's proposal to partially privatize Social Security, opposed a deadline for U.S. withdrawal from the Iraq War, and advocated free trade agreements, including CAFTA.

    <yawn>

    sorry, i think newspaper endorsements are predictable and meaningless in presidential elections.
    when was the last time the Post endorsed a Republican for President?
    conversely, when was the last time the Boston Herald endorsed a Democrat?

    in the words of mr. natural, "it don't mean shit."

    nothing personal, David, just my opinion.

    Washington Post endorsed Reagan. Twice. Boston Hearld is more understandable, it's in an extremely liberal area. Washington DC, however; is mixed.

    I understand your point, however; I do expect Ohio newspapers to start endorsing someone soon and for that to make a difference.

    The Washington Post isn't independent by any means, they lean left. If you want a more independent newspaper in DC that would be the Washington Times.

    The Washington Times is owned by the Moonies for Christ's sake!

    They believe that the Rev. Moon is the Second Coming of Christ.

    Literally.

    Yeah, that's about as independent as FoxNews.

    Sun Myung Moon (born January 6, 1920) is the Korean founder and leader of the world-wide Unification Church and of the larger Unification Movement which owns, operates or subsidizes many organizations involved in political, cultural, mass-media, and other activities. One of the best known of these is the Washington Times newspaper.[1]. He is also well-known for holding Blessing ceremonies, which are often called "mass weddings".

    Moon has said that he is the Messiah and the Second Coming of Christ and is fulfilling Jesus' unfinished mission.[2][3]
