Ohio Paper Editors: Nothing To See Here...

They follow, but do not necessarily probe:

Those who believe that something's rotten in the state of Ohio, that it mishandled the Nov. 2 election, shouldn't hold their breath waiting for a revelation from the state's major papers that might call into question President Bush's victory.

Of course, some stories have to get published:

Elections chief resigns, 4 staff are suspended

Investigation sought in poll data's removal
