USA Today endorses Joe Biden.

Elect Joe Biden. Reject Donald Trump.

Our View: In 2016, we broke tradition in urging you not to vote for Trump. In this extraordinary 2020 election, for the first time we're endorsing a presidential nominee.

Four years ago, the Editorial Board — an ideologically and demographically diverse group of journalists that is separate from the news staff and operates by consensus — broke with tradition and took sides in the presidential race for the first time since USA TODAY was founded in 1982. We urged readers not to vote for Donald Trump, calling the Republican nominee unfit for office because he lacked the “temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty that America needs from its presidents.” We stopped short, however, of an outright endorsement of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. This year, the Editorial Board unanimously supports the election of Joe Biden, who offers a shaken nation a harbor of calm and competence.

TV Ratings: Biden Leads Town Hall Duel With Trump in Early Numbers

Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Donald Trump appeared in directly competing town halls on Thursday night, after the President dropped out of the second debate.

Trump’s hourlong appearance on NBC, which drew criticism across the industry and even an angry letter from top talent and showrunners who work with NBCU, appears to be trailing Biden’s 90-minute session with ABC in the ratings, even with the cable news networks factored in.

Biden is so far averaging 13.9 million total viewers on the Disney-owned network alone, while Trump managed is at 13.1 million across NBC, MSNBC and CNBC combined. In early numbers for the two cablers, MSNBC drew 1.7 million viewers and CNBC around 700,000, meaning that Biden is currently beating Trump 13.9 million to 10.7 million in the direct broadcast battle. This story will be updated with the finale numbers once they become available.


This has really got to be getting under Trump's skin since he sets so much store in his ratings.

Inside the Fall of the CDC

How the world’s greatest public health organization was brought to its knees by a virus, the president and the capitulation of its own leaders, causing damage that could last much longer than the coronavirus.

Butler, then the head of the agency’s coronavirus response, and his team had been trying to craft guidance to help Americans return safely to worship amid worries that two of its greatest comforts — the chanting of prayers and singing of hymns — could launch a deadly virus into the air with each breath.


On Friday, Trump’s aides called the CDC repeatedly about the guidance, according to emails. “Why is it not up?” they demanded until it was posted on the CDC website that afternoon.

The next day, a furious call came from the office of the vice president: The White House suggestions were not optional. The CDC’s failure to use them was insubordinate, according to emails at the time.

Fifteen minutes later, one of Butler’s deputies had the agency’s text replaced with the White House version, the emails show. The danger of singing wasn’t mentioned.
