There goes the english language

Stem cell newborn heart aid hope

Now, when you read the above, what do you take away from the headline. The first couple of times I saw it, I really believed, they just randomly selected words and concatenated them.

Clones causing MRSA problem

Take this headline. More informative. Tells you whats being reported. Now, if you delve into the article, they don't mention what an MRSA is. Sure the "MRSA problem may be due to the emergence of highly contagious clones of the superbug." But what in the world does MRSA stand for?

Journalists are getting worse by the hour at their craft. Is there no pride left in one's work anymore?
