Yahoo Home Page Error

On the topic of irrelevant things that don’t really matter much, I found a bit of a laugh in the yahoo home page a few minutes ago. Well, it was not really a laugh when I seen it. The link was tittled “Mass Extinction Of Wildlife In Sight, Scientists Say”.

Yahoo 1

So I clicked the link, and was surprised to see what came up.

Yahoo 2

Some will think, how convenient. A CONSPIRACY!

No. If you click the link at the bottom of the headline ( Ancient Virus Hints At Life’s Dangers ), you see the article. Which seems to take quite a different tone to the one illustrated by its headline.

The moral of the story?

If you are going to use an attention grabbing headline as click-bait, link it to the right source.
