GAO confirms trend, WAPO: "Z-z-z-z-z-z-z"


Oct. 7: Washington Post Defends Decision To Report Plummeting Casualty Rates on Page 14 Because There's No Proof It's A Trend

Oct. 30: GAO Reports Decline In Violence Is In Fact A Trend; Washington Post Reports This On... Page 14
From the comments:
...[W]hy don't you just admit that you were asleep at the switch (or perhaps "otherwise engaged") when this story transitioned from "Not yet a Trend" to "Trend" to "Old News" at 2:00 am on the night of October 14th?
I have it on good authority that the Deciders left it in the "Trend" status for nearly a full minute, but no enterprising reporter picked up on it... too bad! -- "sherlock"

Later:  The Post reports 1944-45:  No trend.

(Actually, Don Surber noted this first, and deserves a link.)
