Coming up with headlines is difficult, but you have to be aware of the message you're delivering to your readers. Choosing the wrong word can totally change the context of a sentence, and potentially an entire article. Someone at The Examiner in D.C. had a bit of a brain fart when they came up with the headline "Reader Fingers Murder Suspect", much to the dismay of perverted readers.
Not too sure how this slipped through the cracks, unless an editor with a sense of humor just let it slide for the hell of it. D.C.'s free commuter newspaper will bounce back, even though this little oversight is hilarious.
