This Is An Election Year... Really?

Maybe you haven't heard. The candidates have been so meek about the whole thing. And respectful.

We live in an area of the state where our affiliates serve two states. The unfortunate affect is that we get to see two sets of election commercials. Two. I'm losing the will to vote. I don't like any of them anymore, with one exception. But I can't even vote in that election.

I'm not totally sure how a newspaper can endorse a candidate. Aren't they supposed to be un-biased? I think it's one thing when you're a special interest publication, like a Christian news service or union paper, but a mainstream newspaper? How can you be free from bias while endorsing a particular candidate? I admit it; I'm naive.
