Huffington Post hires morons to write headlines

HuffPo declares "Dell’s Earnings Lowest In Four Years."

The details of the story? "Quarterly profit climbed to $1.02 billion, or 41 cents per share, from $799 million, or 31 cents per share, during the year-ago period."

Where does HuffPo get the idea that Dell's earnings are the lowest in four years? Nothing in the news story or in Dell's earnings release says anything even remotely like that. In fact, earnings are higher than they were last quarter, and last year.

HuffPo is just making it up. If they can't be trusted to write a simple headline based on black and white facts in a news story, how can they be trusted to analyze, interpret, and deliver news stories that are more complicated or nuanced?

I hope if this was Facundo Rivera's fault that Arianna doesn't drug and imprison him again. He's got limited English! Go easy on him!
