Inconsistent Style

We harp on AP style in classes. We demand students be consistent in how they present the news so that inconsistencies don't get in the way of storytelling. Abbreviate words in a similar fashion, for example. Capitalize the same. So look below. In the left story's hed, all the words are in uppercase. On the right, only some are. And let's not forget the noun-verb agreement problem in that story to the right, plus its factual error. The police did not make a sexual assault allegation, a student reported it and the police later, upon getting more information, said it didn't happen. This hed misleads. Plus there's that lazy stock photo. You're a news site.
