Illinois is a vital state and the primary is coming up. It's time that publishers made newspapers relevant and timely by introducing the true nature of the man running against Hillary Clinton. There are many African American, Hispanic or other minority people of color who would only believe anything about either candidate from reading about it in their newspaper.

Re: poverty and the low minimum wage: Bernie wants to raise it to $15. More people have money, there is more money being spent. We all win. Bernie is against the death penalty, Hillary Clinton is not.

The Chicago Tribune has plenty of good reasons it should endorse Bernie Sanders, going back to the early days when it documented his being arrested to protest racial inequalities, while Hillary was at the same time a Young Republican working to elect Barry Goldwater as President.
Newspapers could get themselves up-to-date, by educating and even supporting the progressive movement that is happening now.
