CNN Wishes About Alito Clear From Headline

On the right side of today, in the More News section, is this ominous headline, "'Gang of 14' tries to avoid break-up over Alito." Sounds like the Alito nomination is headed for trouble, right?

Of course, if you click the link, the actual headline of the article is, "Two of 'Gang of 14' say Alito filibuster unlikely."

In the actual article we find:
After the group's first meeting on Alito, Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colorado, told reporters there was "a sense that we're still together and keeping this a civil and orderly process at this point."

He said the Gang of 14 "is not going to blow up."

"I don't know a single Democrat who is saying that it's time for a filibuster, that we should really consider it," Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, said after meeting with Alito on Wednesday. "It's way too early."
It doesn't seem there is a break-up to avoid at all. Careful CNN, your agenda is showing.
