Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Cuts Back on Editorials, Focuses on ‘Other Views’

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel — Wisconsin’s largest news organization — told readers in late October that it had decided to “get out of the political endorsement business” and focus on explaining issues to readers. Editorial page editor David Haynes said on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” on Nov. 5: “I think in an era of diminishing resources for newsrooms, we all have to make decisions about where to put our priorities. I’d put it on sticking with issues, and I would not put it on doing endorsements.”
