Paterson to Drop Out of Governor Race
Remember when Obama declared he didn’t want Paterson running again and was disobeyed?
A “whirlwind of accusations” from his media later, and the uppity governor was put in his place.
That’s how NY Times had the hutzpa to break the story:

Just imagine if a corrupt realtor had bought his house, or his seat went for sale to the highest bidder – then he would be our next POTUS!)
Getting the other tabloids to follow breathleassly, hysterically with nearly identical headlines stomping their feet and screaming
