Work that headline

James J. Na at Guns and Butter Blog catches a whopper of a misleading headline in the Times of India, in reference to one of the front-runners to be the next pope (who has been selected but not revealed as I type this). One has to read the entire article to understand the truth of the situation, which is nowhere near as diabolic as suggested by the headline.

UPDATE: Cardinal Ratzinger is now Pope Benedict XVI. I imagine the Times editor responsible for the odious headline is disappointed, and the writer is probably not terribly happy either. The headline and the article were both rather slanted against the new pope, and spoke to an agenda that neither is likely to admit pushing.
