An example of the dumbing down in the media

The other day browsing through the Daily Mail’s website I came across this headline.

Can you all see the mistake in the headline? Dissected alive? That’s called vivisection. It should read something along the lines of:

“The horrors of Japan’s WWII ‘human experiments unit’: Disturbing images show how Japan performed vivisections on Chinese civilians and Allied POWs and infected them with the PLAGUE”

It may seem pedantic and trivial, the sort of thing one should not get worked up over but I hate it. To me it just highlights the dumbing dumb in society and the declining standards of the media.
