I wonder

Whether news outlets feel bad when they get something completely wrong. For instance, the reports about the Fellers case (granted cert yesterday) that claim that the Court will "revisit[] it's landmark 1966 Miranda ruling." Having read the decision below, the cert petition, and the opposition, I can unequivocally say that the case will not revisit Miranda. Miranda warnings were given, and in fact there was a Miranda violation, but that is not the issue before the Court. The only revisiting that should happen is that the Gina Holland of the Associated Press should revisit her wildly inaccurate March 10, 2003 release.
