Someone Needs Their Headline Crayon Taken Away

posted on February 15, 2017

Whether intentionally or not, a headline writer for thehill.com on Tuesday managed to turn an otherwise very informative story into a subtle accusation that Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, is a plagiarist.

The story detailed how Gorsuch, after receiving easy, bipartisan approval from the Senate back in 2006, used some of the same answers to similar questions in a new Senate Judiciary Committee questionnaire. That would seem a logical thing to do: If the answers were appropriate at that time, they likely still would be.

Yet thehill.com’s headline read: “Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch Copies and Pastes.” Perhaps a little more detail in the headline, or a little less accusatory tone when discussing a Supreme Court nominee, would serve that headline writer well moving forward.
