Adventures in headline writing: national media agrees on Clinton's trip to Arkansas

CLINTON: As we diversify our economy, we must also diversify our headline mad libs.
  • CLINTON: As we diversify our economy, we must also diversify our headline mad libs.

Bill Clinton is in town
, which means swarms of national journos who trail the Clintons like squarely dressed Deadheads following a band are descending on the Natural State. You'll know them by their world-weary pre-written ledes and their #clintonworld Tweetdecks. 

You'd almost think that we could just have one single Clinton beat reporter for every newspaper everywhere, since everyone is going to write almost exactly the same headline. 

What say you, Politico?

"Bill Clinton tries to save Arkansas from GOP" 

USA Today

"Bill Clinton tries to rescue Arkansas for Democrats"

CNN: 

"Bill Clinton plays savior for Arkansas Democrats"

And you, Time

"Bill Clinton Tries to Save Democrats in Arkansas"

Should be fun to play this game with Hillary speculation in the coming months. 

Here's the crowd gathered to see Clinton in Conway:

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
