Sneaky Sharks Are Smarter Than Our Media

I was watching the “important coverage” of this morning’s shark attack in California when I happened to notice this headline. Is it just me or is this sort of obvious?

Sharks Attack from Below? Weird.

I love that.  Sharks “typically attack from below.”  Below what, the water?  As far as I know very few sharks have the ability to attack from “above” the water but they are crafty buggers so who knows. Frankly that would be a news story worth reporting…

Shark Attacks From Above Rare But Scary

Ironically, this headline is almost as useless as a story about a swimmer getting attacked by a shark.
