Some of the blame rests upon the news sites themselves.
ATS rules demand users post the EXACT headline. Journalists spin the headline to fit their station's political alignment quite often.
Unless ATS stops enforcing this rule, it sometimes isn't the users' fault.

All my threads come straight from news articles. I use the headline that is in the article. Sometimes it is shrill and misleading; that's not my fault.
I also always provide a link so the MODs can see that I'm not just grandstanding.
