The media must hate the internet

Here are two modest examples, but the more you pay attention to this kind of stuff, the more things like this you find:

  • Here the AP is caught changing titles pretty significantly in an article about some poll numbers. Ah, wishful thinking.
  • Here is a different sort of problem, with CNN tailoring headlines by geography.

Listen, these two aren't the biggest deals in the world, and we'll spend time (maybe lots of time) in the future on what I think are much more serious examples of media bias, etc. That said, you just know that the new level of accountability that the internet and other resources demand drives the traditional media outlets nuts.
