They're No. 2!

For about a day-and-a-half now, the New York Post has been bragging that it "broke the news of (Gov. Eliot) Spitzer's impending resignation" in a story that first appeared on the paper's Web site at 8:38 a.m. Wednesday.

Just one problem: The lead story in the print edition of Wednesday's Albany Times Union - which went to press late Tuesday - carried the headline "Spitzer resigning."

The Post most certainly did NOT break the story, and repeating the lie won't make it true.
