And next USA Today predicts Britney’s comeback

with one comment

Each morning, the people at my office receive an email with an aggregation of news stories the powers that be have determined are relevant to our organization. The company that compiles this report if pretty agnostic, I guess, because if a particular news story is deemed relevant, we may get 10 news outlets’ versions of the same story — which, every now and then, leads to noticing some interesting headline discrepencies:

AP: Bernanke warns of worsening economy

The Washington Times: Bernanke says economy deteriorating

The Wall Street Journal: Job and Housing Markets May Worsen, Posing Risks To Growth, Fed Chief Says

The New York Times: Market Drops on Fed Chief’s Glum Words

Financial Times: Wall St falls as Bernanke testifies

USA Today: Fed chief Bernanke predicts USA will avoid a recession

Oh, USA Today. Your willful delusion unbridled optimism is an inspiration to us all.
