Your headline was shocking this morning:Steven Baldwin arrested for Public lewedness and exploiting the elderly? If I were him I'd sue you!

Yes, Stephen Balwin could sue for slander. I hope he sees your headlines. Shame on you !!

Go read the heading again, each story is seperated, not all in one sentence. They just condensed. Baldwin has his own problems.

There is a link on the CNN website for these stories. Most likely because of the pairing of Baldwin and Public Lewdness. I'd suggest that you add the phrase "& other stories" in the future. You did properly use a semi-colon but there are a lot of Americans who won't recognize its proper use and even many who wouldn't expect to see it in a headlines. In the last 50 or so years I don't recall seeing one in any other headline. Use caution in these posts - odds are you would win if Mr. Baldwin were to sue you but could you afford the ten to twenty thousand dollars it would cost to hire a layer to defend you?
