Nothing But Exploitation

CNN on its web site has the headline “Coroner: Boy died after air crash.” If you read the story you find that the 5-year-old boy, traveling on the Cypriot airliner that crashed in Greece, alive for only “for a second … after the plane slammed into a mountainous area north of Athens.”

First of all, how do they know the boy only lived for a second. Second, what the hell does telling us, in a headline, that the boy died after the crash accomplish? That not everyone died when the plane crashed but that on kid survived for a second?

This is just a bad headline. Its exploitative and ignorant and something Fox should put up. Wait a second, does CNN want to become the new Fox News?
