Misleading titles to provoke a false hope, or wild reaction is becoming common in the media. The lead story on TSN when we were waiting for news from the owners vote on the new CBA was "Bettman: I'm Sorry" My first reaction when I saw it was "here we go, the owners voted no..." Le Journal de Montreal ran an article "Markov reste en Russie" making it sound like he wasn't coming back at all, when the truth was he was only finishing out the road trip his russian team was on.

Shock and awe baby. That's the media in a nutshell. Just watch the weather channel. You'd swear the world was ending one city at a time the way they hype the weather.

Getting PO'ed at RDS and going elsewhere won't solve anything but I share your frustration.
