Yes, news reporting groups use headlines designed to get attention. That is nothing new. It has shown itself to be an effective way to get people's attention for things which may be less interesting. It does not sustain interest however.

That's not what's going on here, actually, and saying it over and over again will never change facts.
And this changes facts?

You knew what the reaction would be, and yet you used the title. It is your fault. You knew what would happen by using that title, knew you would react to such corrects, and you used it anyway.

This is a discussion forum. We are discussing the topic created, which has a misleading title, an abrasive original poster, and is rather boring.

Yes, it is usually against the law to knowingly endanger the life of another person and most laws in most countries will prosecute such offenses.  That is not international news. It is an attempt to get attention beyond what they could expect for facts for whoever published the story.
