Will the Tribune endorse Obama?

One of the great amusements for journalists of recent years has been the Chicago Tribune's absolute and unwavering refusal to endorse a Democrat for President, no matter how weak a candidate the Republican might be.

But now that somebody else owns the paper and is not such a prisoner of history, maybe that unbroken record will be overturned.

But will it? Mike Miner, Chicago's smartest and most knowledgeable press critic, speculates on the subject in a lively column in the Chicago Reader today.

OCTOBER 8: Now it seems that the Tribune's editorial page is polling readers on their presidential choices. Is Vox Pop going to seal the deal, or will the Trib yank the rug out from under the majority? Miner continues the speculation.
