Journalism at its Finest

The headline in today's Oregonian reads: Grief as 12 miners found dead.

The ever classy "USA Today" has the headline: 'Alive!' Miners beat odds.

As it turns out, due to a miscommunication, the miner's families were initially told that the miners were alive. USA Today rushed to press to get the word out, reporting that miners had been taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Rael thinks this is actually Schrödinger's cat in newsprint. If you read USA Today first, you'll save the miners.
