What is going on? Axegrinder can only surmise that the nation’s sub editors have begun a silent revolt. “Replace us with machines will you? Well see how well your papers sell without headlines.”
Either that, or perhaps the content management systems are trying to hasten the demise of sub-editors by sabotaging headlines after they have gone to press? Or perhaps we are witnessing the rise of the machines as they seek to undermine humankind by depriving us of the witty and clever newspaper headlines which make our daily lives bearable?
