On the eve of Election 07, the major papers have taken the opportunity to endorse their favoured party.

All except The Age, which claims that "it is not our role to tell you who to vote for (in a post-deferential age, no one wants to be told who to vote for), or to endorse one party over another." Age readers will apparently "consider the issues carefully and decide which party they wish to be in government." The paper's "fundamental responsibility is to subject whichever party forms government to continuous independant [sic] scrutiny and measure words against actions."
