mmI was doing my usual morning thing perusing the headlines and I had to stop and go back look at headline then open the article only to find it really wasn’t the same. You know what I’m talking about you know the head line that says so and so slams so and so about his or that. I really hate the ones that say watch so and so perform or screw up and when you open the article there’s not even a recent photo of said event. I recently posted a sports headline to Facebook which basically said this team had to struggle to win its game so you open the link because you’re interested in what happened and the first thing you noticed the team won by 40 some points. How the hell is that a struggle? The only one that had a problem was the score keeper who had to keep up with the score. I think some of the best examples are articles concerning politicians. You’ll see a head line about what this one said about another and most of the time the headline reads like an advertisement for a heavy weight fight. But when you open it and read it it’s sort of just plain. I guess in order to get your articles on line you have to be creative or at least your editor has to be. I guess the laws about truth and advertising get bent a lot more than they used to. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
