Headline

July 23, 2007

The Christian Post story today about the death of Tammy Faye Messner included a poorly written headline. It declared, "Tammy Faye Messner Dies after 'Larry King' Interview." That is, of course, to say nothing of the dozen viewers who died during the interview (rimshot!). Although it is true that she died the day after, the headline makes it seem a little quicker.
