A good example of clickbait is a headline that intentionally withholds an important detail of what the article is about, while intentionally making you think it will apply to you.
An extreme example would be "Mass Murderers are Doing THIS to Hurt People Like You".

My favorite website for clickbait headlines is Here are some headlines I grabbed from them just now:

"Run this play, get a touchdown"

"He found this AFTER he finished his coffee"

"I'd have to do WHAT to eat that?"

"Stunned resident finds jellyfish in ..."

Could this be the year for Surface on the tablet??

This is so putrid. During every game this year, viewers are going to see a few scripted moments where a bunch of players/coaches will be standing around with their tablets and the TV commentators will discuss how marvelous/innovative the Surface tablets are. But during the rest of the game, watch closely: along the sidelines you will very rarely see anyone using their tablets

At some point during the season, a referee will make a controversial ruling after reviewing a replay using a Surface tablet (again, scripted moment).

But that's okay. I'll be watching not-the-NFL.
