Why Newspapers Might Not Be Missed As Much As They Think

Sub-headline on the Senate's confirmation of Benjamin Bernanke to another term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from the home page of today's Washington Post:

The Federal Reserve chairman scrapes by with the narrowest margin in the history of the position.

Bernanke was confirmed by a vote of 70-30. This is, admittedly, the closest vote ever for this position. It can hardly be considered "scraping by."
