THE WASHINGTON POST’S HEADLINE HYPE

From today’s Washington Post Corrections section:

The headline on an April 28 analysis about ethics allegations against House Majority Leader Tom DeLay overstated the opinions expressed by legal experts. The experts said that DeLay is in danger of being declared in violation of House rules, but they did not characterize such a finding as “likely.”

The corrected headline reads: “Experts See Problems for DeLay.”

You can still see the original headline via Google search: “DeLay Is Likely to Be Found Culpable.”

Don’t believe the hype, aight?

Update: Jim Geraghty catches more misleading WaPo coverage here.
