So how did the media report the results of the ballot reexamination?
Overwhelmingly, they chose to lead with the news that was comfortable,
uncontroversial-- and seven months old. "In Election Review, Bush Wins
Without Supreme Court Help," was The Wall Street Journal's headline on its
story, paralleling The New York Times' "Study of Disputed Florida Ballots
Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote." That angle would be fine if
you believed that the Supreme Court was the most important aspect of the
story; but what about the presidency?
