Is the Boston Herald Conservative?...

No, not by a long shot, but this staff editorial article is certainly interesting...

"So let the negativity begin.

No sooner had Sen. John Kerry [related, bio] accepted the congratulations of President Bush [related, bio] on his Super Tuesday victories, than he went before supporters and portrayed himself as the inevitable victim of Republican attacks.

... John Kerry has a 20-year record in the U.S. Senate that will be on the line - more than 6,000 votes cast during those years. In a meeting with Herald editors and reporters prior to the New Hampshire primary, Kerry insisted that wouldn't count for much. We're not so sure.

After all, you can't make a case for being strong on defense and vote against essential weapons systems or special appropriations for troops deployed during wartime. How, after all, do you authorize the sending of troops to Iraq and then oppose $87 billion to help conduct that war, buy body armor and provide assistance to Iraq and Afghanistan."

And this one too is of interest...

"But there's also a downside to this well-oiled Democratic structure McAuliffe was so proud of. As Edwards so accurately pointed out Monday, `We get a lot of attention from the American people, and it's harder for George Bush to get attention. And I think that's part of the reason that both myself and John Kerry are beating George Bush nationally in the polls.' "

Hi, Ed.

Sorry to ***** your balloon, but your premise is flawed. The Herald is the Republican newspaper in Boston -- the Globe is liberal.

For Boston you are right, but based on the rest of the country NO it isn't...

In reply to: Re: Is the Boston Herald Conservative?... YES!

the general bias is Liberal, big government, tax and spend, and that is liberal even if it isn't the RADICAL Liberalism you tend to associate with being "slightly left".

Again, you have only to read the UNSIGNED editorial staff editorials to ascertain the paper's inherent bias.

You try to define a lemon as not being a maneater or even a shark because it isn't as big as a white, but that doesn't alter reality.
