Crazy About Soccer

We've always heard that there is more than one way to tell a news story. In the latest example of this, there are two somewhat contradictory headlines.

The first, from Yahoo! news, says "Iraqis bask in rare joy after soccer win."

The second, from The Globe and Mail, says "Gunfire after Iraq soccer win kills two."

For the most part, much of the text in the two news stories is almost identical. Both make mention of the fact that two people were killed and many others wounded while the mostly-male celebrants took off their shirts and waved them in place of flags. The writers at each outlet obviously used the same source.

It really makes me wonder just how much I'm missing when I quickly scan the headlines from online news sources.
