‘Should Journalists Be Beheaded?’ (2016)

See the source image

Gee, ya think?

Misbegotten headlines have always been a rich source of accidental comedy (“New insecticide kills aunts on contact!”), but you’d think that today, with all the time and money spent on education, and all the technological back-up, howlers from the press would go extinct. But not so!

“Imam says journalists should be beheaded during Fox News interview.”


I don’t think the headline writer meant to raise the question of should journalists be behead; and, if so, when and where. I wonder what the answer would be, if you took a nationwide poll. During the actual interview, though–I don’t know. It’d make a mess of the studio.
