Headlines are supposed to tell the story. Consider these from this morning:
You’d never know from reading these headlines, or the headlines in most of the big papers, that the most lethal explosion in Iraq in months was … an accident.
The AP lead makes it sound like a terrorist attack:
BAGHDAD (AP) — A truck packed with rockets blew up Wednesday in a Shiite area of Baghdad, killing 18 people in the deadliest single blast in the city in more than three months.
Lame, lame, lame.
