The newspaper endorsement breakdown

Kerry has picked up more papers than Bush, totaling a circulation of 17.5 million represented by newspapers endorsing Kerry, versus the 11.5 million endorsed by Bush. Kerry, to date, has more switches, too - papers that picked Bush in 2000, versus the switches of papers who endorsed Gore last time but are endorsing Bush this time.

It's not votes delivered, but some people may be swayed.

I guess I don't know that inner workings of Chicago journalism but I was surprised that the Tribune is endorsing Bush and that the Sun Times is going for Kerry. I would've thought that would be reversed.

Also, you can probably at the LA Times to Kerry's side.
