This thesis attempts to examine one relatively unexplored aspect in the study of newspaper editorial endorsement of political candidates. It is based, in part, on the prevalent criticism that newspapers favor one candidate over another in their news coverage of a political campaign. The author regards it as unique in its approach to the problem of determining the degree of truth in that criticism by evaluating the influence of a newspaper's editorial endorsement of a political candidate on the handling of news by its own staff writers.
