The 2016 presidential campaign has been pretty unconventional, so at this point, it's not surprising that some newspapers have offered endorsements -- a practice many publications used to stay away from in an effort to promote less biased news.
The Dallas Morning News said "no" to Donald Trump on Tuesday, saying he "is -- or has been -- at odds with nearly every GOP ideal (the) newspaper holds dear."
The paper hasn't endorsed a Democratic nominee for president in over 75 years. But it broke that trend on Wednesday by endorsing Hillary Clinton, even though it said she has "real shortcomings."
