At the time of this post, the headline reads: “4 deputies shoot man playing loud music at Sweetwater Country Club,” which is misleading because it makes things sound as if playing music is the reason the man was shot. Reading the article:

Orange County Sheriff John Mina said deputies were called to the home early Wednesday because loud music was coming from a home on Majestic Oak Drive… Mina said a 49-year-old man, whose name has not been released, pointed a gun at deputies, who opened fire, striking him. The man was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

The news media is not in the business of selling facts. They are selling advertising space. The facts sometimes get in the way of that.
