Ah, headlines

These four headlines are in my CNN RSS feed right now:

Explosion destroys al Askariya ‘Golden Mosque’

Explosion damages al Askariya ‘Golden Mosque’

Explosion hits al Askariya ‘Golden Mosque’

Explosion destroys golden dome

They all link to the same article on CNN, which is currently titled

Shiite ‘Golden Mosque’ heavily damaged

I like seeing how people revise their headlines, and thinking about why they might have done so. It’s like being a part of the newsroom. Obviously, this process is transparent in print newspapers.

(I commented on Reuters headlines here.)
