Media Power and Elections

For those of you in the metro area (NY-NJ-CT) too stupid to figure out who to vote for on your own, the New York Times editorial page offers this simple list of recommended candidates. By the way, this is the same New York Times editorial page which continues to support strict campaign finance reform laws. Pity the poor politicians who don't happen to receive the New York Times endorsement- The Times is allowed to editorialize all they want, but if they had their way, the ability of politicians to counter such editorials with their own advertising would be severely curtailed. In a way, current campaign laws already curtail the ability of politicians to address their media critics.

And lets be honest here- the New York Times list is all Democrats with a few token Republican recommendations for local races.
