Should we have a forum for these?

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=10432317

Title from this article:

Whole EMI catalogue to be on iTunes


And then some text from the article:

There was no formal announcement regarding a Beatles deal, as some followers anticipated when EMI announced on Sunday that it would hold a press conference with Apple.

"We are working on it," Nicol said, without giving a time frame.

EMI has acted as the distributor for the Beatles since the early 1960s, but the Fab Four's music holding company Apple Corps Ltd. has been a high-profile hold-out from internet music services like Apple's iTunes.

Headlines that contradict the actual story are the reason we stopped our subscription to the Hawkes Bay Today newspaper. You just cant go around saying things in a headline that the article itself clearly and concisely contradicts. It patently obvious from the text of the article that the Beatles catalogue of music available through EMI is not available on iTMS, and isnt about to be in a big hurry either.

The Beatles and EMI have never got along, EMI doesn't own the Beatles catalogue, Apple Corps does!

But how would New Idea and the like sell their magazines?
