Grossly Innacurate Headline

This does not need much commentary. It’s from HoustonChronicle.com.
The headline is “Drunken driver convicted in officer’s death”. The story…

Richard Anthony Sandoval, 23, will face a maximum of 20 years in prison after being convicted Wednesday of intoxication assault of a police officer.

HPD officer Lloyd Morrison, 51, was investigating a crash on the Gulf Freeway when he was struck by a car driven by Sandoval and pinned against a firetruck May 23, 2009. Morrison testified that he suffered two broken legs and an injured shoulder.

Jurors in state District Judge Shawna Reagin’s court will continue hearing testimony today.

Ummmm… Hmmm… Morrison obviously didn’t die, so “Officer’s death” is inaccurate. Also the court will continue hearing testimony. So there’s not a conviction yet.

How utterly incompetent. No wonder the Houston Chronicle is dying.
To make things even better, right now if you go to http://www.chron.com/ you get a 404 error. No such article.
