NY Times all the news they want you to know

Tom Maguire points out the difference between the Wash Post and NY Times in quoting Republican Roy Blunt on the possibility of an immigration bill being passed. The Post:
Asked whether a deal could be struck with the Senate this fall, in the throes of a difficult reelection season, House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) allowed: "I think that's possible. I don't know how likely it is."

The Times cut out the first positive first sentence and only quoted the negative 2d sentence.
