Parsing the Post's Obama Endorsement

Parsing the Post's Obama Endorsement

That New York Post Obama endorsement sure was a jaw-dropper this morning, when you consider the months Post owner Rupert Murdoch and Hillary Clinton spent a-courtin’ each other. The good senator attended the ten-year anniversary party for Fox News, and Murdoch returned the favor by hosting a fat fundraiser for her. In addition, Fox anchors notoriously and erroneously reported that Obama attended a madrassa in Indonesia in his youth. But that was so, you know, not 2008.

Could the editors at the New York Post actually be free to come up with their own endorsements without getting their marching orders from the Murdoch yacht? Did Obama offer News Corporation exclusive satellite feeds from CIA spybots? Is Rupert just feeling grumpy?
