While America Slept: Van Jones is out. 
Dateline, AP. 2:06 AM on a sunday, eastern time, on labor day weekend. Likely after the print deadlines for the sunday papers, at least on the east coast.

President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.

So it's not a matter of news delay. The most transparent administration in history didn't even announce it until sometime after midnight.

Splash, out

Srsly?! Print deadlines?

I guess we could say it's a conspiracy to keep it a secret from my grandpa who doesn't use the internet or watch TV...but how many times do we hear about the '24 hour news cycle'?
(2am release didn't drown Ted Kennedy's death out... (ba-dum-sis!))

Plenty of time for the Sunday shows to run with it, plenty of times for news rags to post it on their sites today.
