In sports stories the headline generally tells who won, but somewhere in the story the score is reported.
Curiously, the front page AP story in the morning newspaper reports that Democrat Doug Jones defeated sex scandal-plagued Republican Roy Moore, but never reports what the margin was.
A nearly identical story on the paper’s website, reportedly updated at 10:19 p.m., well before what the paper’s deadline to press used to be, contains this:
Alabama state law calls for a recount if the margin of victory is less than one-half of one percentage point. With all precincts reporting, Jones led by 1.5 points — three times that margin.
Seems like a serious omission.
The AP online version appears to have been posted before 8 p.m. PST.
