Unintentional Obama Critique

From the Wednesday morning edition of the Daily Herald, a Chicago newspaper:

I don't know what the political makeup of Chicago is. However, since President Obama is from Illinois, I'd think that the press (and the people) would be reluctant to comment on his presidency in this way.

There's a journalistic term for poorly-placed headlines in printed media but I appear to have misplaced my notes from my Tustin High Journalism class.

THIS is a classic example of headline placement gone bad.

[Please note that I am in no way trying to diminish the importance of the music teacher remembered in the "He was a riot" article. Just one of those times when a poorly-placed headline makes a mockery of print journalism.]
