Comment: Misleading Headline (Score 1, Flamebait) 170

"MS Anti-ODF Lobbyist Named as MA Tech Advisor"

I'm sick and tired of misleading headlines on Slashdot! This one makes it seem like there is one tech advisor to MA, and that they're an MS Lobbyist. What we actually find out by reading the rest is that they're only one of eight people on a committee to evaluate MA's IT structure. Listen, I don't like MS any more than the rest of you, but let's at least try to show an interest in getting at the "truth" in technology rather than just furthering our own personal agendas. PLEASE make the headlines less zealous and more realistic! The headline for the original article got it right: "MA Governor-Elect Names MS Anti-ODF Lobbyist to Technology Advisory Group".
