    Today this newspaper does something it has never done in its 143-year history: endorse someone other than the Republican candidate in a presidential contest.

    Since its founding in 1873, The Detroit News has backed a Republican every time it has made a presidential endorsement (three times we have sat on the sidelines — twice during the Franklin Roosevelt elections and in the 2004 Bush/Kerry contest).

    We abandon that long and estimable tradition this year for one reason: Donald J. Trump.

    The 2016 nominee offered by the Republican Party rubs hard against the editorial board’s values as conservatives and Americans. Donald Trump is unprincipled, unstable and quite possibly dangerous. He can not be president.

    His Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, has an impressive resume and a presidential bearing. And although we disagree with her nearly across the board on the issues, we acknowledge she has the temperament to be commander-in-chief and leader of both a diverse nation and the free world.

    Guess the printed news outlets have decided to do what the on air news outlets won't. Good to see that there are some who refuse to have that man associated with true conservatism and anything decent.
