Fun with headlines

It's interesting how an article's headline can set certain expectations.

For example, here is a Hollywood Reporter headline regarding an interview wth Tim Allen:
Tim Allen on ABC's 'Roseanne' Controversy and "Icy Time" for Comedians
As far as headlines go, that's pretty neutral.  

Now here's a headline from Entertainment Weekly, regarding the exact same interview:
Tim Allen breaks silence on Roseanne firing: 'Who makes up these rules?'
Hoo, boy!  You know that's gonna be controversial!
