Newspaper Endorsement Map

Here's a neat map (interactive if you go to the site) showing newspapers across the country and their presidential endorsements in 2004 and 2008. The blue rings show papers that switched from a Republican to a Democratic endorsement, and the red rings show the opposite, while the solid discs show consistent party endorsements in the two elections.There are a lot more blue rings than red rings. The only papers I can see that endorsed McCain this year after Kerry in 2004 are located in Newport News, VA; Bradenton, FL; Jackson, TN; and Corpus Christi, TX. Prominent blue-ring papers, on the other hand, include the New York Daily News, the Chicago Tribune, the Houston Chronicle, and all of the L.A. Newspaper Group papers.

UPDATE: The Anchorage Daily News has endorsed Obama, though it looks like they went with Kerry in the last election.
