Adventures in Chron headline writing (cont'd)
Matt Bramanti's keen eye spots a Chron headline that doesn't quite match the accompanying story.
Here's the headline:
And here's the story (with the relevant part in bold):
What meteorologists call a supercell thunderstorm passed across North Texas, damaging homes with hail the size of softball.
In Wise County, emergency dispatchers received two reports of damaged homes early this morning. A Wise County emergency dispatcher said one home had windows shattered because of hail and the other had its windows blow in by straight-line winds.
The dispatcher said there was hail the size of baseballs out at Decatur Airport and softball-sized hail at the sheriff's department.
We sometimes wonder if Chron headline writers are reading the same stories.
