LA Times tries re-writing history, gets caught

Dang those pesky eyewitnesses!  Dept
Kathleen Hennessey:
[Republican Party leaders have] worried that the energy driving the tea party movement might create a third party that would split the conservative vote.

That scenario played out in New York’s 23rd Congressional District in a special election last year, a cautionary tale in Republican circles because it led to a Democrat capturing a longtime GOP House seat.
Stacy McCain:
From start to finish of the NY23 campaign, the Republican Party was exclusively responsible for electing the Democrat.

Any attempt to foist blame for the Democratic victory in NY23 onto Hoffman and his supporters is a willful perversion of the actual history of that campaign...
McCain reviews how events unfolded here.

The Wall Street Journal:

For Washington, the winter of 2010, which blanketed the capital with about 45 inches before Tuesday, seems likely to break the record 54.5 inches set a decade after record-keeping began in 1888.
Jeff M:
That’s the kind of writing we can expect from our betters in the media!  Is 1888 the year that record keeping began, or is it the year the record was set?  Kids, don’t leave your modifiers dangling.
