When CMSes Attack

The Huffington PostThis screen grab is from The Huffington Post. I think it illustrates clearly why Content Management Systems (CMS) can sometimes be a dangerous thing.

The image appeared half-way down the page enticing readers to check out other content on the site. I’m not sure the way the system automatically chopped the headlines was terribly appropriate. I’ll certainly be taking more care in future when Deirdre (Chinwag’s editor) chides me for my over-lengthy headlines. Don’t want no unfortunate choppage.

And for the record here are the full headlines from the Britney and Heath Ledger stories.
