More Misleading Headlines I Would Like To See

I recently received a press release from Panasonic Communications titled "PANASONIC LEADS GLOBAL PBX MARKET IN 2008," and thought, what happened to Avaya or Cisco Systems? The subhead clarified that it was only for the under-100 extension segment, not the total PBX market. Whoever edited the press release probably knew what they were doing by being more than a little misleading, because they knew many readers usually glance at the top headline, only, or may only recall the main headline and forget the rest of the story at a later date. With this in mind I give you some misleading headlines I would like to see as future No Jitter blog posts:Will Microsoft Make Bid for Nortel ES?
