As we reported last night, the New York Times put an editorial on the front page of their paper for the first time since 1920. The editorial argues in favor of gun confiscation.
What was the 1920 editorial about?

The last time the NYT carried a front-page editorial the paper spoke out against Warren G. Harding’s nomination. So how much pull did that have?
Harding won 60.3% to 34.1%. https://t.co/yhFMapW5M8

Heh. Maybe the Times should keep their editorializing off the front page.
@charlescwcooke the biggest difference in % of the vote between 1st and 2nd in recorded history.
