NYT headlines of the day

NYT Headline #1: "G.M., Citing Progress, Reports Loss of $1.15 Billion". Apparently this is a small loss compared to the past, and is allowing GM to begin paying back its government debt.

NYT Headline #2: "Drug Makers Raise Prices in Face of Health Care Reform". Basically, the new health care bill is going to limit price increases in the coming years, so everyone is trying to give themselves a buffer by raising their prices before the legislation becomes effective. Go buy your cheap drugs now!

Do people not look at these headlines and notice that something is fundamentally flawed? Amazing the world we live in...
