This is an appalling headline: the EFF is making a claim and the headline states it as an established fact. 23:13, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

While the headline may be slightly misleading, it is factually correct. The EFF did file a motion to stop AT&T from forwarding Internet traffic to NSA. The important part that makes the headline factual is that we are reporting on the fact that the EFF filed a motion not that claims of the motion.

The ability to be accountable for re-writing headlines is exactly why I registered. In this case, I agree that while the headline may mislead some, it is factual. It seems to attack AT&T ad hominem; however it's the motion filed that is the actual claim, which is being reported. To the story's credit, it clearly states that the illegal forwarding is only a claim, and does so in the first sentence. Karen 01:06, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
