RE: So how did the right benefit from the Faux/CNN screw up?
I think being in a bubble of right wing propaganda removes the objectivity necessary to evaluate all aspects of a news story. They had legal scenarios outlined and a pre-set idea of how the decision would play out. Exuberance at beating up the President probably played into it as well. Sloppy, absolutely. But I think there was an also an element of group think that contributed to an absence of objectivity that is essential to journalistic integrity. Nobody is going to point it out though, so they move along, unharmed.
