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"
