AP on the Air America scandal

On Saturday the AP released a stock blurb on the scandal. If you've been following this scandal and you've read, for instance, the NYT report there's nothing new. The official title, under which it appears in a few dozen papers, appears to be "N.Y. community center loan investigated".

The story has 15 paragraphs and seven mentions of "Air America", so, gosh, wouldn't one tend to think that AAR could make it into the headline? Especially since most people tend to skip uninteresting headlines and, if anything is uninteresting, a loan and a community center qualify.

These sources change the headline to better match the story (same AP report):

"Investigators probe loan to Air America Radio"

Probe Into Community Center Loan to Air America

Investigators probe public loan to liberal station

Investigators probe New York community center loan to Air America Radio
