Media Bias!

The headline first published in the Patriot Ledger online for Lakeville concerning the American Bulldog that attacked a child and its owner read:

UPDATE: Lakeville police shoot, kill pit bull that attacked babysitter and child

Then it later published an article with a headline that read:

Lakeville police kill dog after attack on boy, 5, and baby sitter

once it was discovered that the dog was actually an American Bulldog, which is NOT a pit bull.
Both articles were written by the same person. I am going to email her and inquire about her word choice in each headline; additionally, I am going to ask her why she reported something she had yet to verify. Hmmmm…??
