A Connecticut Blog Questions Headline Practices


Perhaps you have noticed…

On social media and some news sites there is a growing trend favoring the use of the word “Connecticut” rather than any specific town when it comes to headlines and posts.

As in:

This Connecticut Town Might Raise Taxes

A Connecticut Man Raises Serious Questions

A Connecticut Dog May Have Set a Record

A Connecticut Plane Lands Safely After Mid-Air Disturbance

Whether it is a function of algorithm editing, or an attempt to force us to click on the link to figure out if the story is about our town, the headline pattern is certainly noticeable and for some Laurel readers annoying.

We listened to your complaints about this issue and have now addressed it in bold type.
