We need conflict resolution
Choire Sicha looks at conflicting headlines from Dec. 31.
Relief pours in (Miami Herald)All of these headlines are probably backed up by their stories somehow. But it goes to show how, when writing a headline, you should really step back and look at the big picture.
Tsunami aid trickles in (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
Relief effort expands (Dallas Morning News)
Relief arrives slowly (Anchorage Daily News)
U.S. steps up tsunami relief (Orlando Sentinel)
Red tape ties up tsunami aid (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
Aid arriving (Northern Virginia Daily)
Delays hinder relief (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
What's the bigger deal, that the aid is starting to come in? Or that most of it is being held up?
This is especially important in these stories of progression, in which the news of the day might not be so different from the news of the last few days.
