News reports, analysts, and pundits flooded networks and print media with accounts of the Romney interview. It was big news.
The most significant item was mentioned in the interview, but was lost in the covereage.
It was overridden by the hot, hot question raised by the interview. Will Mitt run again?
News focuses on the unusual. In another era, the confession would have dominated. Today, it is scarcely worth mentioning.
