“Seattle police seek possible torture victims” and other messed up headlines

The July/August issue of Columbia Journalism Review hit my mailbox today and, as usual, I’m passing along the good ones from their regular list of real but messed-up headlines from CJR’s inside the back cover feature called “The Lower case:”

“Utah: Incompetent sex offender freed”

from CBS New York: “Navy SEALS Responsible For Getting Osama bin Laden To Be Honored at 9/11 Museum”

“Sultan woman with dog’s head taken to hospital”

From the Washington Post: “Strauss-Kahn will be freed on bail but placed under house”

From the BBC: “Video: Queen visits Irish National Stud

New York Times: “Neal Beidleman is ready to confront Everest again after a well-chronicled fatal climb in ’96”

“Seattle police seek possible torture victims”
