July 9th, 2009, 09:54 PM #1Stupidest News Headline Ever?
I didn't know where else to put this, so I put it in Daily Chuckle. Why?
Because this is 2009 and I assume this is a joke done in very bad taste.
In my opinion, there isn't anything funny about this headline, but ABC News seems to think there is.
It probably doesn't matter, the Moderators are probably gonna shut this thread down anyway.
If they ban me, too...
It's been fun. It's been a blast. But good things never last.
Nice learning from and talking to you all. It has been a pleasure.
Is this the stupidest news headline ever? I say YES or at least Top 10 stupidest.

For some reason, nothing the media does surprises me anymore.

Stupid, sad, uncalled for, inaccurate, biased - much of what the media have been presenting lately. Such a shame. But, as Michael stated, "nothing the media does surprises me anymore."

Snowfinch, I don't think "stupidest news headline ever" really gets to the root of the problem -- it goes way beyond stupid, and way beyond just the headline.
It's a question of what Bill says: stupid, sad, uncalled for, biased, inaccurate, and all the rest. The whole idiotic story as well as the headline.
Thanks for bringing it up.
Good Lord, how absolutely moronic. Shame on ABC News.Generate more fake news.

I think you under-estimate the mods if you think they would ban you over pointing out that stupid head-line.
I think you're safe to plan your next move.
The top 3 majors will do anything for headlines, especially on their website, when they are competing with the cable news networks, drudge and others like him.

Ditto to Bills post. Unbelievable a news outlet would post that.

While I agree that the facts in the story were quite educational, I still think that this story is not a Headline calibre.
It is sad when we as people would want to exploit a mans death for "News" and just as bad when the readers feed off other peoples misery. As the news people obviously thought about when printing this "story of interest".
How low can they go ?

I am sure more ignorant headlines will fill all forms of media in the coming months.
I have one hope that some good will come from the moronic headlines like the one I linked.
What good can come from such ignorance?
That we all look at these headlines. Think about them. Get up from where we are seated. Walk into the bathroom.
Then take a good look at 'that man/woman in mirror' and make that change.
A change to make this world a better place, where headlines like these are not tolerated, especially when they target little children that just lost their father.
I'm not talking censorship. I'm talking common sense and respect.
The media ought not be pickin' on little kids. Just my opinion.

The word "ignorant" comes to mind. A point was made in the article that I think would be more appropriate to ask... if the children will get along with family members they don't know very well.
I don't pay much attention to the media lately, otherwise I'd shake my head so much that my neck would hurt. LOL.-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Sensational headlines to further exploit the MJ madness.
It's shameful and the story is utterly stupid. Those kids are with their FAMILY for God's sake. What's the issue?! ArghhhhhhhhPeace,
