Defying Neuharth, Gannett Blog endorses!

Like rubbernecking past a car wreck, I can’t resist octogenarian retired CEO Al Neuharth‘s weekly column, every Friday in USA Today.

No presidential election would be complete without Big Al reminding us — again and again! — how much he hates it when newspapers endorse candidates seeking election.

But this year, we’re told, media bosses are finally taking cues from our favorite treehouse dwelling Floridian. “Newspapers making presidential editorial endorsements this year likely will be the lowest percentage ever,” Neuharth opines, without any discernible evidence backing that up.

So, how does Gannett Blog‘s esteemed editorial board (that would be me) come down on the 2008 election? Why, we endorse — voting!
