CNN Changes Headline That Made It Sound Like There Was Spontaneous Combustion at Joseph's Tomb

Angry Arabs torched the place, but the headline originally read: "Joseph's Tomb catches fire in spate of Palestinian-Israeli violence."

Sheesh--who's writing their headlines--Barack Obama? (I like the "spate," though; at least one CNN headline-writer knows how to use a thesaurus.)

Update: Here's another doozy from CNN--"More die as violence and finger pointing plagues Israelis and Palestinians. Kind of makes it sound as though the pointing fingers--and not the angry, murderous Arabs wielding pointy knives--are the problem, doesn't it?
