PostSubject: ‘Unfit to clean toilets’: USA Today’s unusually forceful non-janitorial editorial about Trump   Thu Dec 14, 2017 4:56 am

Hot takes aren't really USA Today's thing, but the newspaper's editorial board delivered a pillar of fire to hotel rooms across the country Wednesday.



Writing about President Trump's sexually suggestive statement that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) “would do anything” for campaign contributions, USA Today declared that “a president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.”

If you're thinking this is just more criticism from another liberal editorial board, you would be wrong. As the unofficial newspaper of U.S. travelers, USA Today strives for political neutrality, even on its opinion page. It has never endorsed a presidential candidate.

“Our editorial board believes in a common-sense, centrist approach in which the two sides work together to find reasonable compromises to solve the nation's problems,” editorial page editor Bill Sternberg said in an online video last year.

Sternberg added that USA Today does not endorse presidential candidates because “as a national newspaper, we don't presume to tell our readers in every region which is the right choice for them. . . . Another reason is that we don't care to be aligned with either major political party. Many readers don't understand the wall between the editorial page and the news section. So if we were to endorse a Republican candidate, it might create an inaccurate perception that our news coverage would tilt toward the GOP, and the same goes for a Democrat.”
