“Our goal is not so much to turn elections as to offer readers an independent analysis of campaigns and ballot measures that can be complex and confusing — sometimes by design,” Chron editorial page editor John Diaz explains in a column on Sunday.

Diaz also notes:

    “[F]or all the Republicans who complain about newspaper bias, I offer this fact: The surge of endorsements for Democrat Obama is the exception, not the rule. Since 1940, the Republican candidate has been endorsed by a majority of U.S. dailies in all but three elections – 1964 (Johnson over Goldwater), 1992 (Clinton over Bush and Perot) and 2004 (Kerry over Bush).
