The story seemed pretty straight forward to me.

The headline did what it was supposed to do, got me to click on the story, got to give the writer that.  He was 'surrounded by about 60,000 swarming bees', just seems to implicate the bees were responsible.....most were in the wall, I am sure, or the responders would not have even gone in.  "Man dies after fall from chair" would not have gotten my attention.  I just know many nonbee people will will ask me if I saw the story about the man who was killed by 60,000 bees.  They will not read far enough to see the bees had little to do with his death.

Other headlines they could have used ...
 "Man dies from fall, 60,000 bees are not suspects"
 "Man found dead, 60,000 witnesses not talking"
 "Man dies, 60,000 Bees were just Innocent Bystanders"

News people get it wrong quite often & I can imagine a little embellishment on their part is often the norm to spice up the story. Seems like just about every year some reporter mentions there were a million bees in that house!  Seriously, a million bees?   grin

I heard that over the radio,nothing of the fall
If they said Man falls off chair and dies it surly never would have
made it past Miami,this way it became nationwide

Funny stuff right there.  Truth is something nobody wants to deal with anymore.  Especially the media leave out a few important facts and all the sudden you have a great story.  Of course for those that watch the O'Rilley Factor he just subs in different facts that support his views.  Gotta love the media gotta wade through all the trash to get to the facts.  We get more opinion pieces then news anymore.
