From the Washington Post Plum Line: The Wall Street Journal editor’s nonchalance “suggests a lack of preparedness for what we may be facing.”
Here’s another from Greg Sargent’s Plum Line: If the headline does not convey the fact that Trump’s claim is in question or open to doubt, based on the known facts, then it is insufficiently informative.
For instance, the Bloomberg headline
“Trump seeks credit for 5,000 Sprint jobs already touted” is better than
the New York Times headline
“Trump Takes Credit for Sprint Plan to Add 5,000 Jobs in U.S.”
What about MY headline? In the movie “All the Way” Martin Luther King uses that idiom to describe President LBJ: “This president is going to have to deliver, or we will hold his feet to the fire.”
