News media around the world are known for misleading headlines --- they want to you stick around and look at the ads. Heck, even the Japanese newspapers are bad about sensationalizing crime. I've watched several Japanese papers over the years... they're really bad about reporting the same crime repeatedly but just modifying the story a bit. Makes crime look much worse than it is. Heck, our local tv stations in the States do that. I may see the same lurid "internet predator--not" story five times in a week and they recycle it all on weekends.
