Date: Mon, 6 Jan 1997 15:50:02 -0600 From: Greg Pulliam Subject: WOTY on CNN CNN Headline News ran with the WOTY story in four or five consecutive half-hours Saturday night. As did all the news organizations, they got it wrong, and said that "Soccer Mom" was the winner, rather than "-mom". The news media almost NEVER (in my history of studying them and being a part of them) "nail" a story. Gregory J.
