Stop the presses!

I see a lot of tech headlines each day ... a lot. Some of the coverage - particularly of Apple - can be pretty misleading at best (to be clear, there's a lot of great coverage as well). The lure of a sensational story or a catchy headline can be hard to resist. As I've said before:

Apple + Sensational Statement = Clicks

That brings us to the linked post. In it, Kontra uses actual headlines from the recent iPod-DRM court case to make a larger point:

Yes, we’re getting better tools to find and check facts, and yet the incentives to not deceive readers through disingenuous headlining and packaging are clearly not in place.

Kontra's post is a must-read.
