Here's today's "What the F**k?" moment:

The 2nd Quarter GDP figure for the US economy was revised upward today from 2.8% to 3.3%. So, what sort of headlines did this news garner?
Associated Press: Economic Growth at Weakest Rate in a Year
Reuters News: Economic Growth Better Than Thought
That's right. Two virtually identical stories, yet two vastly divergent headlines. Any Botox boosters at the AP Copy Editing desk these days?
