The picture accompanying this headline gives it an Onion-ish quality.

From WiJS: "Fact flub in speech calls Ryan's credibility into question"

"Fact Flub?" How weaselly can one get when discussing lies? Do they imagine Ryan just forgot the script and so lied inadvertently? It seems pretty obvious the editor who chose the headline was trying to dissuade people from reading it.

From WiJS around 8:30 pm:
"Millions in unclaimed life insurance benefits to be dispursed"


Since corrected. (Did the the Bangalore QA center give them a heads-up?)

This one needs NO help. In fact it's just about perfect.
