CJR give us this fun piece, examining how the media got suckered and then tried to change course. After spending an entire afternoon talking about a Supreme Court candidate (Edith Clement) that they were sure Bush would nominate for the position that evening, the media then had to stop on a dime and double back when Bush actually nominated an entirely different candidate (John G. Roberts). The article outlines a number of these “backtrack but make it look like you didn’t do anything wrong” techniques, culminating with, apparently “quick, cut to a shot of a mariachi band.”
