The Conversion of Paul

Catching up with the news yesterday, I ran across this in an article:

Well, it turns out, there's a little mistake: Paul Ryan is a Republican, not a Democrat.

Misidentifying an obscure public official's party affiliation isn't a crime, of course. Unless, you know, that person is the individual who gave the most recent opposition response to the President's State of the Union.

And just look at the context of the quote: I would assume even a CNN reporter would question a Democrat calling out the teacher unions. That in and of itself would be a lead story on its own.

And, for the record, I noticed this yesterday, and it's still up today. I know it's a minor issue, but this is an indicator as to why print journalism is dying.
