Am I the only one getting tired of all the puns in news headlines. It detracts from the news itself and often gives the wrong slant as it may give a different slant or bias in the headline than the news itself warrants.

I don't find it clever, just a lowering of standards.
By the way, it isn't just PAW, but broadcast news items too.
We are intelligent people, we don't need silly puns to make us want to read an article.
