Some headlines

Reuters: McCain to release 400 pages of medical records

Wall Street Journal: McCain to Release Medical Records Friday

Fox News: McCain Medical Records to Be Released Friday

Isn’t this a little like using the headline “Prisoner Released” to describe what happens when a reporter goes to a prison to interview an inmate through plexiglass?

Some editors were more circumspect in their headlines:

LA Times: McCain to limit reporters’ access to his medical records

CNN: McCain allows peek at medical records

UPI: McCain limits access to medical records
