PiPress, Strib: Same headline AGAIN?!

by Mike Rose

Ok, once is weird, but this is something else…

For the second time in as many weeks, the metro papers had the SAME headline on a prominent front page story. Today, both the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press had "Ready, set…recount" as a title for their Franken-Coleman story. Last Friday, it was "Why it fell" for the NTSB findings story.

Like I said last week, the headline-writing process typically involves multiple folks thinking creatively. The fact that these two papers came up with identical titles just amazes me.
