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.
I agree with you 100%. I cannot even browse thru their news pages anymore as the coverage is so unbelievably slanted toward the left that I have taken to calling it the Poor-Man's NY Times (figuratively AND literally).
But Mort Zuckerman is so pro-US and pro-Israel that his viewpoint has obviously prevailed on the Editorial Page.
This endorsement will come as a shock to the average Daily News reader, who still thinks Bill Clinton is a god.

This is a replay of 2000, when they also endorsed Bush, to everyone's stunned amazement.
