Abstract: 

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos described a new agreement between his government and the FARC rebels as “a new light of hope” on the path toward peace — so you can forgive the media for getting a little ahead of themselves. Some stories referred to the agreement as a “new ceasefire deal” and called it a “historic agreement.” That’s not quite the case — but there’s still good reason to be happy.
