PiPress, Strib: Same headline AGAIN?!

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.
