Talk:Jim Webb campaign addresses first 2016 presidential election controversy

HeadlineEdit

The current headline makes me uncomfortable. Calling it a "controversy" seems to shade toward sensationalism, especially when Webb's position is, essentially, that it's not a big deal (or shouldn't be). Calling it a controversy is controversial, and therefore self-fulfilling. --Pi zero (talk) 13:21, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Okay, now I get it. The main thing that's newsworthy about it is that it is a controversy. The alternative would be to name the accusation in the headline, which, given the nature of the controversy, would actually be taking sides in the controversy. Interesting case study. --Pi zero (talk) 14:35, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
