Wide difference in headlines about Buick crossover


Recommended Posts

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:

"GM Kills Planned Buick Crossover"

-Wall St. Journal

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


"GM Kills Rebadged Buick Compact Crossover, Including Plug-In..."
