Todays endorsement of Romney by the Sentinel is long been seen through its selective reporting champion the wealthy of Fitchburg.

Under its new editor the Sentinel has lost its credibility.

Two full pages in the Sunday paper, front page black background is a violation of the publics trust in my mind. This is more than an endorsement.

Shame on the Sentinel!!!!!!!! Bias once again, atleast they stay the same though which is totally bias reporting!

And when the NY Times, Boston Globe and T&G endorse Obama is that a violation of the public's trust as well? You're a simpleton. A complete and udder failure at everything you've ever attempted. The only thing you've succeeded at is being a loser.

All media is biased and misleading. Like the reports of the 'menengitis outbreak'. Call it what it really is. It's not an outbreak it's a mass murder.

The Sentinel editor needs to be investigated. A front page/two page editorial endorsement? This was more like an advertisement than an endorsement.

Then they issued a free copy of this Sunday Pro-Romney advertisement to alllocal voters. The DNC needs to comment! I cannot believe that the editor spent massive financials of the Sentinel!!

The Sentinel just discredited everything they print, this is WAY BEYOND the normal endorsement!

Lynch,

Please cite the law that the S&E is violating? We'll wait while you perform an exhaustive search.

I could save you the time and say "just because you think it's against the law doesn't meant that you have any clue why you're talking about". You are clueless in just about all matters, especially law.

Who cares? Don't read the newspaper if you don't like it. You chose to read the Sentinel, they didn't force you.

And by the way I wouldn't be talking about a violation of public trust if I was you..........wink.

Under the pretense of assisting the voters in making up their minds, newspapers and various "Alliances for Good Government" do a great disservice to the political process by making recommendations of those candidates in upcoming elections for whom the voters should cast their ballot. In making such endorsements, these public announcements in effect replace the process that should be going on in the voter's mind. If a newspaper or a group interested in good government wanted to render a real service to the voting public, it would provide voters with the information and evidence they need in order to make their own decisions, not attempt to make those decisions for them. But by suggesting a single candidate for each office, with no explanation of why the other candidates were passed over and no detailed comparison of all the candidates, these announcements do not assist the voter when making a choice. Instead, they undermine the election process itself, for it is the reasoned choice of each individual voter that is the security of our democratic system. It is only through the closest attention of the people that government can be kept on track.

"If once [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions." --Thomas Jefferson to E, Carrington, 1787.

It could be said that this kind of knowledge is the voter's responsibility, and that the burden of educating the public cannot be laid on privately owned newspapers and agencies. But this is a matter of social responsibility for the press and those agencies. This is why we have a free press, and a responsible press should want to meet the needs of a free society. It is asking too much to expect voters to assemble all the information they need to properly fulfill their job of deciding between candidates. They would need to keep files and scrapbooks on all the candidates in order to do this, and even then they would be relying on printed sources. No ordinary person who works for a living should be asked to devote that much time and attention to such a task, however important it is. At the same time, such a task could be more easily done by those trained and equipped to do it, and it could be done for the benefit of all if published in the newspapers.

In order to make a proper judgment, those who decide must have the evidence pro and con presented to them. When a newspaper makes an endorsement, it encourages the voters to avoid thinking and making decisions based on their own judgment. This is no more proper in the political process than it would be for a judge to direct every verdict of a jury. The whole idea of a government of the people is to insure that the least likely to be corruptible element in the nation--the people themselves--is in a position to exercise their judgment.

"We think experience has proved it safer for the mass of individuals composing the society to reserve to themselves personally the exercise of all rightful powers to which they are competent and to delegate those to which they are not competent to deputies named and removable for unfaithful conduct by themselves immediately." --Thomas Jefferson to P. Dupont, 1816.

This protective mechanism, this essential element of good government, is thwarted by anything that deprives the people of the capacity to exercise their judgment. Just like a good judge, a responsible newspaper should see to it that the case is impartially presented to the voters, and then leave it to them to make what they think is the proper decision. When it does otherwise, it not only treats the voters in a demeaning manner, but it undermines the fundamental operation of our system of government. Sure, editors are themselves intelligent people, and no doubt feel that their expressed judgment is valid. But everyone's mind is influenced by interests that are often unconsciously effective. And where interest may be consciously made effective to advantage, we can expect it to happen.

The people need the information necessary to form an opinion. They don't need to be told what that opinion should be. Telling people what to think and how to vote is the way things are done in a dictatorship, not in a free country. Newspapers are indispensable for the proper functioning of our democracy, but their aim should be to furnish the people with the information they need to make their decisions, and not try to make those decisions for them.
