An editorial unendorsement

In the world of political endorsements, especially those emanating from newspapers’ editorial boards, it’s fairly rare to see an unendorsement. But the Orlando Sentinel just did, and they did it with class and style. “Our bad,” “a fairly dismal candidate,” and “juvenile lapse in judgment” are not phrases one often reads in a serious newspaper’s editorial. But they are entirely appropriate in this one (even if that second one actually referred to his opponent).

Give it a read: “We apologize for endorsing U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz, who wants to overturn the election”
