Yep, as predicted, the Daily News endorses Bush, after absolutely slandering him for years.
As usual, the power of the publisher (Mort Zuckerman, as pro-Israel as he is pro-America) trumps the power of the loony-lefty newsroom.

Wow, a Bush endorsement from NY's more liberal tabloid.
I like it !

I'm certainly not surprised. I'm a daily reader of the Daily News, and I've found that their editorial page has been leaning right-wing (on foreign policy issues in general and the Battle for Iraq specifically) for some time now - and, IMO, decidedly so. They may be playing to their blue-collar "base", but nonetheless, that's how it has been.
This is in contrast to their reportage, which has been and remains extremely slanted. The anti-Bush bias in their news stories just stinks.
It's an interesting dichotomy that I have been following all year.

Okay. There's hail in Hades this morning. That said...
Kerry's domestic agenda is preferable. He would repeal Bush's tax reductions on incomes of $200,000...
Nice little slap in the face to small business, there. There still are small businesses in NYC, aren't there? Bloombug hasn't driven them all out or into bankruptcy yet? If small business owners vote for Kerry they need their heads examined.

Interesting that the Leftists who control the Daily News webroom didn't see fit to post this editorial on the main page of their web page. But they did include the insipid Mike Lupica.
