Headlines 101
Posted by: Dale Franks on Wednesday, August 09, 2006

The purpose of the newspaper headline is two-fold. It provides a brief précis of the story. But, more importantly, it should make you want to read the story. This headline accomplishes both:

Pope to serve jail time for having sex with inmate

C'mon. Admit it. You really want to know what this story is about, don't you?

No, jason, that’s incorrect. Benedict is really going to prison for bumping uglies with an inmate.

One of my favorite, albeit possibly apocryphal, was for a news story about then-L.A. City Councilwoman Laura Chick, reading: "Chick Accuses Her Male Coleagues of Sexism."
