Funny, tragic headlines

PZ reprinted a comic that makes fun of current journalistic practices. It's called "20th Century headlines rewritten to get more clicks". Go on over and see it. It's very funny.

This is my favorite:
"1986 - This video of a terminally ill child watching the Challenger launch will break your heart."
It's true. American publications really write headlines in this outlandish manner. It's just the latest addition to the carnival sideshow phenomenon we refer to as "American culture". Yeesh.
