Thanks Eddie. I’ve updated the links and I think they all now work.

Please add The Bakersfield Californian to the list of newspaper recommending a “NO” on Prop 8. They announced it today.

Thanks Ray.

That is one I’ve been tracking. The other paper I’m waiting for is the Fresno Bee. These are the only major papers that remain that I thought were questionable as to which way they might go.

Please add the Metro Silicone Valley.

Again thanks, Kevin.

I haven’t focused as much on the weeklies or alternative papers but they definitely deserve mention.

Add the Marin Independent Journal:

Hey, it is time consuming to try and find all the endorsement, especially the independant and alternative papers. I’ll take all the help I can get.

Just a few exceptions… While I will include targeted media, I won’t be including school papers, trade papers, corporate newssheets, or other media that does not have general distribution. Some of those may be worthy of mention in a thread of their own but probably not as part of the list.

We are GLAD to say that the town we live in has the only news paper to endorsement prop-8. WE ARE GLAD that no other news papers are so hatefull and backwords thinking as the Paradise Post.
They call us political activist here in Paradise. We are THOSE guys. But what the heck, someone has to be.

Michael and Dayle,

Thank you for standing up for equality in Paradise. I read that the Paradise school board considered endorsing Prop 8 last night but did not do so. Were you there?

October 22nd, 2008 | LINK

They paved Paradise, put up a fundie church parking lot.

We went to the School board meeting to join the voice of people that do not think the school board should voice how they feel about a prop at all. There were many people there on both sides of the issue. A lot of Amen’s, as well as voices of reasion. Alas, they changed some of the words that the Church Commision submited, “We want people to be well informed, do their own resurch on Prop 8″
The news the same night stated that the Paradise School Board “Endorces” Yes on Prop 8. SO SAD!
It seemed very pre-planed. Paradise center for Tolerance and nonviolence spoke, as well as many others on how it is not correct to voice on this item. Death ears.
