Dumb Headlines

Here’s a quick sample of stupid headlines from recent news:

Matthew Fox Arrested for Assaulting Lady Bus Driver‎

Well honestly, can you blame him for this? It seems likely he simply wanted to take control of the Lady Bus, which I can only assume is a bus full of pretty ladies. Who wouldn’t?

Earthquake Surprises Yankees Who Noticed It Occurred

That’s just crackerjack reporting by a top newsman. But what about the Yankees who didn’t notice? Were they surprised?

Sarah Jessica Parker Prepares for Hurricane Irene

Oh jeez, speaking of “stellar reporting”. Could USA Today possibly live up to its stereotype more fully? I submit that they could not.

With quality journalism like this, it’s difficult to understand why the media is in trouble.
