Age urged to have proper headlines
The headline to this story previously read "Court urges UK to pressure Australia". If you read the article you can see that this was blatantly wrong.
"A London court was today urged to order British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw to pressure Australia into granting visas to two boys who escaped from the Woomera detention centre. "
"The judges reserved their decision. "
So basically counsel for the boys was doing all the urging. It has now been updated to read "Court urged to pressure Australia", which whilst slightly better, is still wrong.
Lets hope the Age's new editor cleans up rubbish like this.
