The Bizarre Detroit News Endorsement

Yes, I know, newspaper editorials are vastly overrated and deserve to be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, if given that much attention, but when I heard that the Detroit News endorsed Mitt Romney for president, I could not believe that a major paper would thrash the economic interests of its own city as convincingly as that, since Romney effectively told Detroit to go to Hell when the automobile industry was in trouble a few years ago.  Romney might be a son of Detroit, but he's no friend of Detroit.  If the News detests Obama that much, they could have endorsed Rocky Anderson or some other 3rd party or independent candidate.  A major newspaper endorsing someone other than a major party candidate for president, wouldn't that be a breath of fresh air for a change?

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2012 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
