This AP story has an interesting headline in the Reformer: "New faces, New Gov, Means Job Losses." That headline focuses on the job loss, and attributes that to the new governor.

In contrast, the Burlington Free Press ran the same AP story with the headline "Shumlin Administration Brings Job Openings." That headline focuses on the up side, which is the job openings, and gives the new governor credit.

The Nashua Telegraph ran a more inclusive headline that says "New governor means new faces, job losses." USA Today ran the same headline with a state identifier: "In VT, New governor means new faces, job losses."

I'm guessing the original AP version had the inclusive headline that covered both new faces and job losses. I wonder why the Reformer took such a negative approach, and why the BFP ran a completely different and positive headline.

What it all means is that now elected Shumlin is going to show you HIS many faces and the shummy we warned you about will start showing soon. AH "it's good to be the King" [Mel Brooks]. Any guesses on how many "house parties that new VSP chauffeur will be going to?

Those 85 jobs are just about all Vt is going to get over the four years!

I wonder it that was the unconscious mind of the reformer article title writer…there are tough times ahead of us and layoffs are in our future with the reformer staff?

I mean, happiness and depression comes in waves all through our lives, the good times and the bad…with our pessimism and optimism lens on for the same issue we see completely different things when looking over the same event?

So what is going on?
