Patterico, one of my favorite bloggers, catches the LA Times in a beauty.

Headline: "Long a Republican Bulwark, a Growing Arizona Is in Play."

Inconvenient fact revealed in 18th paragraph: Bush leads AZ by 16 points.

Displaying admirable professional loyalty, Mickey Kaus asks, "Can't they let Kinsley edit the news pages too?"

Who says they aren't? After all, you don't need polls to know that Arizona really is in play. The LA Times's real error was trying to prove a point that didn't need to be proved!
