DeLay Indictments Partially Dismissed

The Austin American Statesman has this "Breaking News Alert" currently displayed on their website: Judge throws out some DeLay indictments.

However, their article, the paper's initial post on this story, paints a somewhat more bleak picture:
Judge upholds money laundering charges against DeLay

AUSTIN, Texas -- Money laundering charges against Republican Rep. Tom DeLay were upheld Monday, dashing his hopes for reclaiming his post as House majority leader, but the judge dismissed charges related to any conspiracy to violate Texas' election code.
Once again, the Texas media seems to have already convicted the man before the trial even starts.
