Bungled Headline Of the Day

Today's Bungled Headline Award goes to AP:

Kidnapped BBC correspondent longest held in Gaza

Alan Johnston has been held for 17 days, but the headline only works if you exclude Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who doesn't enjoy the luxury of being on the BBC payroll. Shalit was kidnapped 277 days ago.
