What's in a headline?

Dear Webmaster:

The headline in today's Winnipeg Free Press article read, "Dumont Broke Deal, Court Told" (Dan Lett, Page B3) when it should have been, "Metis National Council Broke Deal." How can an organization hire someone under certain conditions then expect to change them after two years without an adjustment in pay whether higher or lower.

A deal is a deal until the condition(s) change. Only when a new one is agreed to and signed by both parties does a replacement exist. The original was terminated the minute the MNC re-wrote the terms of refrences. So who broke it?

Dear Anonymous:

As somone who was in the courtroom yesterday I agree the headline tends to be a little misleading. However, if you read the entire article it's fair, impartial and an accurate reflection of what transpired Monday. Anyone with whom I talked today was of the same opinion.
