One of the contributors to the Daily Kos contacted the Crawford Iconoclast about reactions to their endorsement of Kerry. The response from the paper's editor:
From what we can gather, as of Saturday noon, we have had over 600 letters to the editor, of which about 90 percent have been positive and 10 percent negative.
Most of the negatives are attacks on me personally, some rather threatening. Of the positives, many say we expressed their views perfectly, views they have been afraid to express because of fear of retaliation.
When the story hit, we received many phone calls. On Tuesday, 90 percent were negative, very emotional, very threatening. About 10 percent were positive. The next day and through noon Saturday, nearly all have been positive.Posted by Dave at October 02, 2004 11:00 PM
