> No worries Erik, Indian media is known for misquoting :)
Please let's not generalize the problem of mis quoting and then
specifically use it as a pejorative within the context of the Indian
media. Anyone who reads through various news sources realizes that
perspectives and points of view differs within media houses and,
putting a spin on things is global.

That headline might have actually ended up getting readers to read the
news article and help in publicizing in some way.
