Dallas Morning News endorsed Greg Abbott [View all]

I just called them and canceled my subscription. I told them why.
They said “we offer all of these things that aren’t political” and I told them the Fort Worth Star Telegram does as well and they don’t support Abbott.
I recommended that they reach out to their conservative audience for support.
The only voice I have is my vote and my dollar. I try to use them both to my advantage.
