    A bit of reshaping goes on every night at a big newspaper. Late news can send reporters and editors scrambling to freshen the news for readers -- but usually in subtle, little-noticed touches. As this year’s election results unfolded, the story of Gore vs. Bush made journalists react in ways that were as obvious as, well, 6-inch type on the front page.

    Below are the first three editions of the paper from election night and the front page of the Extra Edition that was published at 5 a.m.
