Newspapers that endorsed Obama in '08 switch to Romney

If you're keeping score on the number of newspaper endorsements the presidential candidates have received so far, Romney is ahead, a big surprise considering that most newspapers are liberal and traditionally endorse Democrats.

From The Hartford Courant:
According to Editor & Publisher, the longtime bible of the newspaper business, the tally as of Saturday was 112 for Republican Mitt Romney and 84 for President Obama. That list didn't include papers from Sunday, when many delivered their endorsements, but it suggested a shift from 2008, when E&P's final tally showed daily newspapers -- which historically have skewed Republican -- endorsing Obama over Republican John McCain by a better than 3-2 margin, 296 to 180.
