Here is a perfect example of the media saying something they want so desperately to be true, they report it as if it was true:

US President George W. Bush must decide whether to sidestep Congress after Democrats again blocked a confirmation vote for his controversial UN ambassador John Bolton.
I betcha dollars to donuts there is not an ounce of truth to that. I say Bush means to get this man confirmed and just because those metrosexual, lefty, gutless, spineless, seditious, enemies of the American people don't like him, they actually fear him, they will enforce the tyranny of the minority.
Who says Bush must decide whether to sidestep or not? AP?

I hate to say I told you so (actually I love it)
Frist's about-face came after a White House luncheon in which President Bush persuaded Senate Republicans to schedule another vote and break a deadlock set by Democrats.
"That's been exhausted," Frist said earlier Tuesday regarding his attempts to break a stalemate that has held up the nominee for months. But after meeting with Bush, Frist came out to the cameras stationed at the White House and said he would schedule a third vote to end debate and vote for confirmation.
"The president made it very clear that he expects an up or down vote," he said, adding that Democratic resistance has nothing to do with Bolton, but everything to do with resentment toward the president.
