Headline Howler

You've probably never heard of the Tri-City Herald, but it recently posted a story with the headline:
"Arafat says imprisoned lawmaker Barghouti will be released".

Yes, Barghouti might be a "lawmaker" on the basis of his membership in the "Palestinian Legislative Council". But he was not imprisoned for being a "lawmaker", he is on trial for murder.

Barghouti is a "lawmaker" in the same sense that Saddam Hussein was a jurist, Abimael Guzman is a college professor and Josef Megele was a physician
