CNN on Spitzer: Guess That Party!

There should be a new rule added to all stylebooks: whenever a politican makes the news, their party affiliation should be the very first word of the story. As in, "Democratic Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York . . . " It would just be a consistent and fair way to do it.

Ace tells us that CNN's article on Spitzer's dalliances fails to mention his party at all. The closest that story gets is this:

But his stint as governor has been marred by several problems, including an unpopular plan to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants and a plot by his aides to smear Spitzer's main Republican nemesis.

See? They added a clue to the guessing game.
