Silliest silly season spin headline?

The award goes surprise, surprise) to Archant newspapers (Midweek Herald, Exmouth Journal, Sidmouth Journal) for the headline from this EDDC press release:

Council backs campaign against hate crime

It isn’t offering money or resources. It isn’t doing ANYTHING AT ALL except issuing a press release backing a Devon and Cornwall Police initiative. No doubt one of those great ideas that come – at a price – from our Police and Crime Commissioner.

Can you imagine the furore if the council DIDN’T back it!

Now that WOULD be a headline!
