Whoa!, you're totally missing the point, the point isn't the headline, the point is selling the paper in order to sell advertising.
Its not funny at all when you think about it this way.
You can go to youtube right now and find all those videos of people fishing, which fit the scenario you just wrote about, these people posted these videos because they thought they were interesting!
And they are! (At least I think so)
Any pretense that you hold that the news shows you what you want/need to know is not shared by the news organizations themselves.
Hence the need to correct the headline!
