No News? Make something up

The AP and the N&O had no real news today on Karl Rove, so they decided to make a story. The story reported that Rove canceled some planned appearances due to scheduling conflicts. The story also noted that Rove has appeared before Fitzgerald's grand jury. Good solid reporting, though not exactly groundbreaking stuff.

So to spice things up, and with absolutely no evidence to support the theory, the N&O ran the story claiming that Rove canceled the appearances because of the Fitzgerald inquiry. Hack partisan journalism from the paper "committed to accuracy."
