The Most Egregious Example of Journalistic Hyperbole, Ever in the History of Writing Things Down

I like Nikki Finke’s webpage. It had some of the most honest, reliable reporting available during the writers’ strike. She’s frequently informative and interesting, but she really needs to get a little perspective. Take her latest headline:

URGENT! Warner’s ‘Watchmen’ In Legal Peril

“Urgent”?  Nay, “URGENT!”  Really?

The Watchmen are in danger!  Light up the Litigation Signal, it’s time to spring into action!

I’ll whip off my glasses, pick up a briefcase, and leap out the window, because the Watchmen are in Legal Peril!!!

As my friend said, “Man, I’ve never read a more boring ‘URGENT!’ article.”

I like how it’s an “exclusive,” too.  A motion filed in open court on a Monday afternoon.  How ever did she gain access?  Nikkie Finke must be THE BEST REPORTER IN THE WORLD!
