> FNC’s chyron: “Magic number reached, confirmation all but certain.”

> CNN placed Roberts’ photo on the lower left corner of the screen.

> At least on my TV, ABC was the only network to air a special report. “The next one is likely to be a bigger fight, but maybe President Bush can pull another rabbit out of his hat,” George Stephanopoulos said. Bob Woodruff anchored.

> FNC’s Brit Hume: “This is a very critical part of a President’s legacy.”

> CBSNews.com posted a breaking news banner that said Roberts had been confirmed before the Senate voted. It pulled the banner down a few minutes later.
