Sexing it up

Nothing to do with motorcycling but I wanted to vent my spleen nevertheless.

Headline from the front page of The Age:

Three women held over pokie armed robberies

Headline from the article itself:

Three women, man held over armed robberies

How has it become so acceptable, so commonplace for supposedly reputable newspapers to sex up their headlines in order to drive click-thrus?  It makes me both very angry and very sad to see this going on.  Very very sad.
