From The Washington Post:
Dean Baquet wasn’t bluffing.
The New York Times executive editor said during a visit to Harvard in September that he would risk jail to publish Donald Trump’s tax returns. He made good on his word Saturday night when the Times published Trump tax documents from 1995, which show the Republican presidential nominee claimed losses of $916 million that year — enough to avoid paying federal income taxes for as many as 18 years afterward.
Meanwhile, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has now racked up more newspaper editorials than Trump has – several from newspapers that have long supported the conservative candidate in the race.
Conservative newspaper after conservative newspaper broke tradition in September by endorsing Clinton — or, perhaps more appropriately, by telling their readers why they shouldn’t vote for Trump…
So far, Trump has racked up zero major newspaper endorsements. That’s six fewer than Gary Johnson, who couldn’t name any foreign leader he admires in an interview last week and about whom CNN opined “Why is Gary Johnson still in the race?”
Trump’s boosters took to the Sunday morning talk shows to promote the candidate’s avoidance of paying taxes as a genius move by a man well-versed in the byzantine tax code, reports Politico.
