Palin: Disconnect between NYT/IHT headlines and articles

I've posted before on how the headlines found on www.iht.com often don't correspond with those found in the newspaper, and how headlines can give a slanted impression of the content of an article.

Another phenomena is how headlines listed in the www.iht.com daily article indexes don't correspond with the article behind the index.

A good example would be this one I just found: an intriguing article entitled
Palin's teenage daughter pregnant: Questions deepen about McCain's choice

When you click on to that link on the index, at least as I write, you arrive at this article:

Storm leads McCain to scale back convention

No mention of the teenage daughter.

International Herald Tribune
New York Times
