Some Headlines Write Themselves: Some of My Favorites.
You have to love the press. Information coming from all directions, deadlines, editors, and of course trying to write the most catchiest headlines to garner the top spots on the press pages. As well as trying to steal the reader attention and to sensationalize even the most mondane stories.
I have collected and posted some of the best misleading and funniest actual newspaper headlines from recent years. I have posted them here along with a slideshow of some articals that prove, that even though it's the press, some headlines just write themselves and are due the respect of a good chuckle or belly laugh.
So as a salute the our friends of the AP wire. Here are some of the headlines that would have even got past "J. Jonas Jameson."
P.S. Thank you editor and chiefs for making my job a little easier.
