Today brings another edition of “Headlines in the News”: specifically, those headlines that are written in such a way that you misinterpret them:
- St. Louis Post Dispach: Mizzou’s Temple won’t play vs. OU. Now, I’m Jewish. I saw this as a congregation in Columbia MO refusing to do business with the largest Kosher organization, the Orthodox Union (OU). But, nooooo. It’s about a running back being injured and not playing against Oklahoma. Not what I was expecting.
- Los Angeles Daily News: Church prefers bondage to strip club. Now, you and I might think this was about a kinky church that has a different way of penalizing sinners. But noooooo. It is actually about a strip club attempting to move into a former (ahem) meat market next to a bondage club, and a nearby church prefering the bondage club as a neighbor to the strip club.
So what’s your favorite misleading headline from today’s news?
