Huffington Headline in the Gutter

October 30th, 2007

Kudos to the folks at Progress Action for catching the discrepency between the headlines that The Huffington Post and Buzzflash used for the same story.

The Huffie version read,

“Ford Saw Clinton As Sex Addict: New Bio”

And Buzzflash penned it this way,

“In his newest book, published posthumously, Gerald Ford viewed the Iraq war as a mistake, and also believed Dick Cheney was a liability and should have been replaced on the 2004 Republican ticket 10/30″

Both referred to a story about Former President Gerald Ford’s new book, published after his death.

Would be interesting to know which wording got more hits (I’m betting on the Huffington version, which is a pretty sad commentary). I should probably make the disclaimer that Buzzflash has run a number of headlines that link to stories that I’ve posted on the Feminist Peace Network blog and I am deeply grateful to them for their efforts to fully include women in the news. Would that there were more sites like that and less of the sensationalized garbage approach to hawking ‘the news’.
