The following stories will go down in the annals as two of the great miscalls in newspaper history.
That was the mainstream media spin on Thursday morning.
Several hours later. Well. The rest is history.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Manhattan grand jury investigating hush money paid on Donald Trump’s behalf is scheduled to consider other matters next week before taking a previously scheduled two-week hiatus, a person familiar with the matter said Wednesday. That means a vote on whether or not to indict the former president likely wouldn’t come until late April at the earliest.
The break, which was scheduled in advance when the panel was convened in January, coincides with Passover, Easter and spring break for the New York City public school system.
The person who confirmed the grand jury’s schedule was not authorized to speak publicly about secretive grand jury proceedings and did so on condition of anonymity. A message left with the district attorney’s office was not immediately returned.
In a statement released through a lawyer, Trump said: “I HAVE GAINED SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THIS GRAND JURY.”

‘This case is going nowhere and Bragg knows it’: Trump’s camp says grand jury month-long hiatus is ‘first step’ in Manhattan DA dropping ‘bogus’ prosecution

Sources close to Trump told DailyMail.com on Wednesday afternoon that they believe the stall is the first step in a walk-back by Bragg’s office.
‘The case is going nowhere and Bragg knows it,’ said one.
