Interesting headlines

30 12 2013

Sometimes I see interesting headlines in my travails around the internet. Here are two recent ones from some Australian news websites:



In the one above, there really was a link to a page titled ‘This story has been removed’ which mentioned some doctor up on a sexual assault charge. The story was there, but the headline was odd. I suspect there was some threat of legal action and the story should have been deleted, but instead it remained and the headline and thus the summary headline/link reflected the changed title. Oops.

The one below was a lovely mismatch of the headline/picture with the abstract. The headline/picture matched, but neither matched the abstract. Puts a new meaning on ‘successful swimmers’ I guess 😉
