US paper facing threats for endorsing Hillary Clinton


Los Angeles (AFP) - A conservative Arizona newspaper is facing death threats and losing subscriptions after it broke with tradition and endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump for US president, a senior editor told AFP Thursday.

The Phoenix-based Arizona Republic, the state's largest newspaper, announced in an editorial on Tuesday that it was backing a Democrat for the first time since it was founded in 1890, on the grounds that Trump was neither conservative nor qualified to be president.

The paper's editorial board said that while Clinton was by no means without flaws, she was by far the "superior choice."
