USA Today Breaks Tradition By Endorsing Biden

'This is not normal election, and these are not normal times,' editorial board explains in first ever support of candidate.

USA Today, one of the largest US newspapers, announced its first-ever presidential endorsement Tuesday to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
"Four years ago, the Editorial Board — an ideologically and demographically diverse group of journalists that is separate from the news staff and operates by consensus — broke with tradition and took sides in the presidential race for the first time since USA TODAY was founded in 1982," the editorial board said in a statement.
"We urged readers not to vote for [US President] Donald Trump, calling the Republican nominee unfit for office because he lacked the 'temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty that America needs from its presidents.'"
However, after 38-years, the board decided to support the election of Biden "unanimously" in the Nov. 3 elections, saying he offers "a shaken nation a harbor of calm and competence."
"If this were a choice between two capable major party nominees who happened to have opposing ideas, we wouldn't choose sides. Different voters have different concerns. But this is not a normal election, and these are not normal times," the board wrote.
"This year, character, competence and credibility are on the ballot. Given Trump's refusal to guarantee a peaceful transfer of power if he loses, so, too, is the future of America's democracy."
Claiming that the endorsement will not have any effect on news reports, the board concluded: "We may never endorse a presidential nominee again. In fact, we hope we'll never have to. " -
