Conflicting Reports: Gaddafi May or May Not Be Leaving Libya Soon

If you are confused by the pace and velocity of events half a world away, this probably shouldn't be an article you should read.  According to sources from CNN and Fox News, Libyan Dictator Maummar Gaddafi is both poised to exit soon and is not looking to exit at all.  See, I told you.

To really show the problem, here are the headlines from Fox News and CNN, respectively:

Anti-Qaddafi Forces Say They Are Close to Talks Related to the Libyan Leader's Departure

Opposition: No exit deal talks with Gadhafi

Now let's dig a little deeper into the stories.  The article on Fox begins with:
Representatives of forces opposing Muammar al-Qaddafi say they have received an offer to negotiate terms of the Libyan leader's departure...
And the article on CNN begins:
Libyan opposition members denied Tuesday that they have been negotiating an exit deal with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi...
Don't you just love the media?
