Yet another terrible headline

Normally, I try to keep politics out of this particular blog; it’s devoted to my career as a writer. But now I make an exception.

Headlines are supposed to summarize an article, the reader looking over it and deciding whether or not it’s worth their time to continue reading. There are good ones, and then there are these:

“Rush Limbaugh endorses Clinton for Obama’s cabinet”

If you read the article, you learn Rush’s endorsement is simply a statement that President-Elect Barack Obama made a great move appointing Hillary Clinton to be his Secretary of State. In the Barbara Walters interview, Rush quotes that old adage: “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.

Does that sound like Rush is saying: “I think Hillary Clinton will do a great job as Secretary of State”? No. It’s as ridiculous as when media reports claimed Rush had endorsed Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidency simply by joking that the presidency would give him years of material for his radio show.
