Misleading headlines

When I was checking out Google News this morning (as I always do), I was intrigued to see the headlines ‘Cuba’s Ruling Communists Shore Up Power‘. With a headline like that, I expected something like this to be happening. I thought that maybe it was a ‘communist thing’. Of course, the article just listed business as usual in Cuba.

Another misleading headline was ‘Aust-India saga takes new turn‘. Here’s me thinking that maybe India had got over being a half-decent team and sucked it up. You know, acted a little tougher on the field and traded in their glass jaws. But the truth is that the ‘saga’ hasn’t taken a new turn. The headline should read ‘Indian Cricket Team: Waa Waa Waa!”. What a joke that team has turned into here.
