When the headline of an article poses a question which the story refutes.
Headline: Is all of earth's oxygen thick with heavy poisons, making human extinction an inevitability?
Article: Most scientists say no.
Headline: Will city pet owners have to install tracking devices / remote control mines in their pets anuses?
Article: One guy thought this was a good idea, but then everyone else said it was totally crazy and there's no way it will happen, go figure.
Headline: Can hackers break into your computer and take picture of you through your web cam, then place your image on security camera footage of someone committing a murder?
Article: It happened in one isolated incident which we'll cover for a few weeks, but probably wont happen ever again.
This is rampant, fear-inducing, paper-selling hogwash!
