    The mistake (all too common on the internet) was to release it early.  But I would expect the template to be written and ready to publish--media outlets always do this.  Otherwise they would have to make something up within about 5 seconds to have it ready to post front-page.

    But editorial oversight to release it early--someone screwed up.

      Romney wants to look like he's not a nasty SOB so he settled for boring.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

    •  It is standard practice for an OBITUARY (0+ / 0-)

      Not a news piece. What if he says something really out of line? What if trips? What if he gets a pie thrown in his face?

      Arguably, NONE of this will happen, but what bothers me the most is that it paints an utterly UNTRUE picture of the event. It isn't reporting but painting the news.

      They are not the same.

      What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.
