Actual Headline

2nd lesbian blogger revealed as man. That's the headline given to this AP story about "Paula Brooks" by the the Mercury News, and tweeted without edit by @BreakingNews.

Whoooooooooooooops. I think you mean "Second man admits masquerading as lesbian blogger."

That's not a semantic difference.
