Morning Mistake: The Headlineless Headline

  • SHARES

This morning’s grand flub goes to WaPo for this display of online editing skills. Perhaps the mistake on Eli Saslow’s story can be excused away by the late hourĀ  — it was 12:18 a.m. when they published. Or perhaps not. A FishbowlDC reader reported the headline goof to WaPo on Sunday. As of 8 a.m. this morning, the headline is still not fixed. At this rate, prospects of this happening are sketchy. To see if they ever come up with a headline, visit here.

UPDATE: Miracles are happening all over the place today. WaPo finally got a headline slapped on their story. It is as follows: “DEFENDING THE FAITH With little money or support, Abdirizak Bihi is on a one-man missionto protect young Somali Americans from the lure of Islamist extremists.” Way to go WaPo!
