Express-News Editorial Board crosses line on ethics

The Express-News Editorial Board already endorsed candidates for the Board of Trustees, but apparently felt the need to re-endorse them yesterday:

Endorse candidates once? Fine. But pushing their names again as a voting “reminder” clearly steps over the line into free campaign advertising.

According to the Express-News ethics:

Political activity

The Express-News understands its employees are citizens of a democracy and as such have obligations to fulfill, including voting in any and all elections. However, we also have a duty to society – to provide impartial coverage of all political activity.
