This pair of headlines from this morning give us vastly different views of Chrysler's financial condition:
Chrysler Reports $4 Billion Loss - Wall Street Journal
Chrysler in $143M profit - CNN MoneyThis morning also, The National Post uses so-called 'scare quotes' in a headline concerning the Pope:
Pope promises 'action' on sexual abuse crisis.Scare quotes are used by headline writers when they doubt the factual accuracy of a word. I wondered how other headline might read if scare quotes were used on them (all these headlines from cnn.com didn't have scare quotes in the original):
At least 11 missing after oil rig 'blast'
Tensions 'high' in Bangkok standoff
Iran set for 'military' exercises in Gulf
Former IOC 'chief' Samaranch dies at 89
Apple profits increase '90 percent'
'Report': Pirates expanding global reach
China pays tribute to earthquake 'victims'
Ousted Kyrgyz leader 'defiant' over exit
