Today in editing

Today's lesson in first-year macroeconomics. Fox's lede story, second graf, 8 p.m.:

The president, who speaks shortly after 9 p.m. ET, will hammer the theme of income inequality, arguing that the economic “recovery” largely has benefited those “at the top” while leaving many Americans struggling to break into the middle class.

And at 10 p.m.:

The president hammered the theme of income inequality during his State of the Union address, arguing that the economic recovery largely has benefited those “at the top” while leaving many Americans struggling to break into the middle class. 


Scare quotes are getting to be quite the thing in some sectors of the foamy-mouthed media. Drudge has even taken to using them for cabinet agencies. Apparently Fox still has some lingering concern about being caught with its fair-n-balanced down.
