One of these things is not like the others

[Trigger warning for sexual assault]
This morning, the website of my local newspaper has this:

[Caption: A section of a website titled "Entertainment", featuring four stories, the most prominent being "Attorney denies John Stamos had fling with 17-year-old (His accusers conspired to extort $680,000 from the actor)." [Stamos picture!] The three other stories are: "Fewer people are watching late-night talk shows", "In new tape, Mel Gibson allegedly admits hitting ex-girlfriend", and "Swiss reject US extradition request for Roman Polanski."

Note that Gibson "allegedly" admitted to hitting a woman, whereas accusers most definitely conspired to extort money from Stamos.

Don't you go changin', Syracuse Post-Standard. [Maybe you should change.]
