CNN needs new editors

The first line of this story (http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/02/10/pen....html?iref=NS1 reads "...a suspected natural gas explosion that killed at least one person dead..."

Is there a less severe way of being killed?

If there is, I'd like to hear about it.

Chicago Tribune is bad too, but theirs seem to be more typo related than just clumsy wording. Our hometown paper is the absolute WORST.

Yeah, some of the stuff in my hometown paper drives me nuts, but I think some of that is due to them being so understaffed and overworked...!

Yahoo! News... when I'm on there... I've found some very skewed articles. Seems like not only is editing required, but fact checking as well. I'm afraid politics has been embedded in our news sources for a long time.
