What happens when Obama-leaning journalists also happen to be Obama-leaning students? You get college newspaper endorsements that favor the junior senator from Illinois by 63 to 1 as of October 31, Editor & Publisher magazine writes. Of the editorial boards that endorsed a candidate (many more did not), the only newspaper to endorse McCain so far is the Daily Mississippian from the University of Mississippi.
