The Orlando Sentinel published its positive reaction to a Mitt Romney speech before the event happened, Jim Romenesko reported.

According to Romenesko, the Sentinel‘s Mike Lafferty said “the text was written…in anticipation of the speech’s outcome…based in part on advance excerpts that the Romney campaign sent to news organizations” and “posted earlier than it should have been.”

We wrote last year when the Daily Mail published a story reporting the wrong verdict in the Amanda Knox trial.  The Mail apologized and explained it had “two versions” of the trial’s outcome prepared and said it ran the wrong one until it realized its error quickly.
