New York Times And The Republican Party

1303 words - 6 pages

In 1884, the New York Times was under the direction of a new publisher, George Jones, Jones was disgusted with the way the Grant administration was governed and allowed for constant scandal to plague its effectiveness. Previously the paper had a strong connection to the Republican party, under their new direction the paper choose to endorse the Democratic party. Those who were running on the Republican ticket were not qualified to fix the issues that were plaguing the American government at the time. Grover Cleveland, was the only acceptable candidate and thus was the only acceptable choice for the Times to endorse. If they were to keep with their previous republican reputation they would isolate many individuals, most of whom were the majority of those who subscribed to the magazine. In addition they would also be supporting morals and beliefs that were against those that they upheld. In good faith there would be no plausible reason for the paper to support a candidate that would directly contradict not only their morals but would allow for the continued political discord plaguing the country. There are many articles written in 1884 that describe both the failure of the Republican party and how the Democratic party was able to capitalize on that fraction.
The early months of the year were focused on the Republican party and how they failed the people during the National convention in Chicago of that year. The writers and editors were very clear in their belief that they would only support a Republican candidate if there was substantial proof that they were capable of giving the country the direction and fortitude they deserve. “ If he shall be a man unworthy to hold that great office, a man who personally and politically, in office or out represents principles and practices which the Times abhors… but we can give them no help.” The Times were not going to support a candidate that would continue to be a failure to this country as the sitting president already was. If there was to be any confusion the post made clear that there would be no support of a candidate who was unable to see that his actions were to be later implanted on to a country. If the man that was to be chosen could not accept the responsibility for not only his actions but the repercussions that follow, he may not be chosen. The Times would not allow its readers to be persuaded by just its publication but that they must be well informed individuals. With many other papers being distributed there should be a wide berth of information used and complied to ensure that the decision being made is made with the clearest understanding of the choices placed before them. It is their duty as a trusted newspaper that works at the mercy of those who subscribe that they ensure that they are knowledgeable of the political landscape that is within their area. Especially where there are many individuals who were unaware of the policies that would be enacted if the selected Republican...
