She's Our Link to Terror?

This was yesterday's Herald Sun front page, an Australian tabloid. Actually, this is a different front page than what I saw in the newsagent in Brisbane today. With this one it's obvious Big Brother winner Trevor is not the link to terror (that's the actual story). He's boxed into his own piece, most people recognise him, and there's a mini-headline, "$1 mill and a bride too"

The front page I saw, was instead a bust shot, of a smiling anglo-saxon girl with a bird on her shoulder. There was no headline, no boxed outline defining it as a separate story, no additional bold text alerting to the fact that it was in any way separate from the blaring headline.

I thought, "Really? She's OUR LINK TO TERROR?!" I was intrigued. It wasn't until I picked it up that I saw that, no, this was Olympic swimmer Brooke Hanson. Either a good ploy to get people interested, as I was, or somebody just in a hurry. Mind you, smiling white anglo saxon girl with bird on shoulder OUR LINK TO TERROR, makes a much more interesting story.
