Media candidate endorsements

It seems strange that US newspapers choose to openly endorse a presidential candidate by declaring their position. In a way it's better than what we had in Australia before the election, where newspapers were accused of pretending to be non-partisan, while pushing hard for Mark Latham over our recently re-elected prime minister John Howard. And while the majority of the press were accused of unfairly pulling for Latham, we see how much good that did him. Latham, and Labor, lost abysmally.

If the majority of mainstream media, or at least newspapers in the US, are editorialising for Kerry and demonising Bush I can see it having a similar effect to what it did here in Australia. That is, the exact opposite of what they had hoped.
