Click on the link to that story now and it reads very differently:
I suspect this means that the Kennedy loyalists got to the press first. Which account of the meeting is more accurate is hard to judge from a distance.
Lib Dem leader Charles Kennedy has faced calls from senior MPs for him to improve his performance or stand down.
Mr Kennedy was confronted at a meeting of the what the party calls its "shadow cabinet" on Tuesday.
BBC News political editor Nick Robinson said a number of the most senior Lib Dem MPs had lined up at the meeting to confront their leader.
Mr Kennedy countered by telling them that he intended to stay on and if they were not happy they should resign.
Both his critics and his backers later agreed that Charles Kennedy had seen off an attempted mutiny, but that he was now "on probation".
But some believe it could mark the beginning of the end of his leadership.
Interestingly, on the BBC News this evening Nick Robinson was talking up Ming Campbell as an alternative candidate for the leadership. We live in interesting times.
