Actual Headline: Nobody injured when officer’s weapon fires during arrest
Accurate Headline: Officer needs to learn to keep his finger off the #$%&ing trigger

Actual Headline: Carrie Underwood, Tennessee lawmaker face off on Twitter
Accurate Headline: TN Lawmaker shames celebrity that claims bill does something it doesn’t actually do
(This one actually really pisses me off. The reporter takes Underwood’s claim at face value and expresses moral outrage when the guy who wrote the bill asked Underwood if she’d actually read it. The story doesn’t link to the bill, or point out that what Underwood was claiming was completely false. Not inaccurate: False.)
