Arizona Republic Gets Death Threats After Clinton Endorsement

The Arizona Republic is suffering some major blowback for its decision to back a Democrat over a Republican in a presidential campaign for the first time since its founding in 1890.

Since the paper published its endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president, it has faced a steady stream of subscription cancellations and even a death threat, according to a senior editor.

“Well, it’s been crazy around here,” said Phil Boas, who runs the paper’s editorial page. “We’re getting a lot of reaction both locally and national. I don’t believe true readers of the editorial page are surprised by all this at all, because over the past year we have been writing scathing, scalding articles about Donald Trump.”

    I find it deplorable and ridiculous that ANY newspaper thinks they have the right and obligation to endorse any political candidates. Report news and stay out of politics. This is exactly why you are becoming extinct.

    I will never buy the AZ Republic again. Why do you think you have the right to endorse a political candidate anyway? We are smart enough to make our own choices. Real journalism is a thing of the past. I, for one do not care about who you choose for president. Just report the news and we will make those decisions for ourselves.
