A couple of noteworthy and related things happened this weekend:
- The Winston-Salem Journal endorsed Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson for President.
- No one really gave a s&*%.
Now the Winston-Salem Journal isn’t what you’d call a widely read newspaper, but it is the major daily for a city of about 230,000 and in the past this decision would have been notable. The muted reaction could be because the Richmond Times-Dispatch did it first, but honestly I don’t think anyone cares what the editorial boards of any of the papers think. If that’s not a sign of how little influence local dailies have these days I don’t know what is.
