Headlines Sell Papers, But Not Truth

New, 1 comment

Writers generally don't get to select their headlines, which can cause trouble. Take for instance this recent headline from the Denver Post on Ian Stewart: "Stewart displays slump a thing of the past". Patrick Saunders, the author of the article, did not choose the headline because the article does not mention that Stewart is out of a slump.

Hitting an absolute blast to tie the game on Wednesday certainly helps things, and driving in two on Thursday also shows Stewart's changing things in his game. But two good games in a row does not end a slump. Well, unless you want to claim he's in a new slump.

The newspaper industry is dwindling and maybe telling the truth will help alleviate the long, slow death it is experiencing. The truth will set you free.
