The Media And Zoology

Wed May 02, 2007 7:16 pm

I was intrigued by the headline

"Huge green worms invade Texas neighborhood"

http://www.wkyc.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=66482

expecting some 1950's type sci-fi movie scenario.

In the article the worms are in fact caterpillars and probably aren't that huge either.

Are worms and caterpillars synonymous in the US or is that the usual story of having the bullshit attention grabbing headline with the rather different reality in the body of the report?

No, but neither is the truth and the media. Any 10 year old can tell the difference.
