Saturday Night Funny Video: Formulating Headlines to Describe OWS

From the end of this weekend’s Fox News Watch show, a comedy video created by the Jest.com humor site I saw the Romenesko page posted on Wednesday titled “Where Occupy Wall Street Headlines Come From.” FNC host Jon Scott asked: “Did you ever wonder how different news operations come up with the headlines for big stories? Well, the creative people at Jest.com give us their take on the process.”

The clip imagines how the editors at the New York Times, New York Post, Fox News Channel, Huffington Post, Time, New Yorker and the Highlights kids magazine would formulate a headline for the Occupy Wall Street protests. I think it nails the New York Times and Huffington Post.
