NYT endorses two candidates with two completely different worldviews. Apparently in an effort to render the endorsement meaningless.— ian bremmer (@ianbremmer) January 20, 2020
Presumedly the logic behind the dual NYT endorsement is not to put off any piece of the wider anti-Trump readership they’ve accumulated over past 3 years.— ian bremmer (@ianbremmer) January 20, 2020
I get it. But the “decision” hurts the credibility of the paper.
NY Times endorsed both Warren & Klobuchar strategically for 2 reasons:— Steve Deace (@SteveDeaceShow) January 20, 2020
1) Warren has always been Left media’s candidate, which is how she survived all her gaffes.
2) The other woman is competing with Biden in Iowa for voters, not Warren. So this is also an attempt to help Warren.
rationale for endorsing two candidates is amazingly convoluted. To wit: amid three visions for America, two radical and one traditional, we discard one and split the difference between the best argued of the other two: https://t.co/outLBWbF4x— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) January 20, 2020
NY Times wants Warren. Throwing Klobuchar in there was their way of telling Biden to pick her as VP should he get the nomination.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) January 20, 2020
Don't be fooled, NYT endorsed Warren. They threw Klobuchar in there because because they knew everyone expected them to pick Warren, and they know Klobuchar doesn't have that great of a chance.— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) January 20, 2020
What incredible cowardice. https://t.co/VdkVRqNo22— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) January 20, 2020
Bad enough they held their nose for Warren after her atrocious interview (re: https://t.co/9tehwbRWp1) but they couldn’t even bring themselves to do so without being cripplingly wishy washy about it. Why endorse at all if you’re backing two candidates in the same election!— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) January 20, 2020
What an absolute waste of time and a spectacularly insulting test of their readers’ patience.— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) January 20, 2020
A Warren endorsement would've had an impact. A Klobuchar endorsement would've had an impact. Splitting it down the middle waters down the impact of either choice. A negative synergy. https://t.co/ISkjoKMlZl— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) January 20, 2020
