What the hell is smoking?

News today that the Senate didn't pass the House-approved minimum wage increase, yadda yadda yadda. And the news is on as a top story.

And this is the headline link:

Raise for poor people gets nowhere in Senate

Raise for poor people? Is that the best they could do? A global multimedia empire has a headline writer that spits out things like "raise for poor people?" Once you get to the actual story, the headline is normal. But that link on the home page is just ridiculous. Forget accuracy - it's not even economical! "Minimum wage hike" has fewer letters and words. Gah! Raise for poor people?!?! And this is CNN!

check it out if you want. This isn't the first time that I've noticed this over on the "Top Stories" headline section of, either. Maybe I should keep a running file on this.
