Wide difference in headlines about Buick crossover

1 post in this topic

We've seen countless examples of how different media outlets "slant" news stories about GM. Their wording of one of the latest headlines, dealing with Buick cancelling what most people considered a "rebadge" of a Saturn Vue crossover, ranged from, in my opinion, simply factual to misleading to insulting. The careless way some of the headlines were written may confuse the public; little, subtle differences in one headline compared to another give very differing impressions.

Here are some sample headlines:

-Wall St. Journal

"GM cancels "Hideous' Buick SUV After Would-Be Customers Twitter"
