NYT headlines supports Big Media, text the consumer: who wins?

Dan Gillmor on Grassroots Journalism, Etc. blogs A Biased Headline Twists a Story. “Today’s New York Times has a story entitled “Federal Effort to Head Off TV Piracy Is Challenged” — a headline that gives the entire weight of the dispute to one side.”

A headline tilted the other way would have been “FCC collaborates with Big Media to crush fair use.” As is usual in these cases, truth is somewhere in the middle. The NYT article is far more fair than the headline would have you believe.
