I noticed a posting on the DDN site where someone had mentioned a headline that was deceiving. The headline in question was “Local chef wins first-ever Chef Quest Challenge”. The poster wrote
Headline is deceiving. It’s a local chef winning a LOCAL competition. While great and everything, if it were a competition outside the Miami Valley it might be more deserving of the “local chef wins”. That’s like saying “local man buys house” …in the area. Your point? There isn’t even a mention of where the other contestants are from to make being “local” more impressive.
There was another comment that reinforced that comment and then another that defended the article. The reinforcing comment was deleted. If you are reading comments that might be negative, perhaps you should take them to heart instead of deleting them. They are probably there for a good reason.
