US Weekly does a 180

by andybechtel

US Weekly understands its audience: Do these readers want to know about Africa’s struggles with disease, poverty and neglect, as discussed by Angelina Jolie on “Anderson Cooper 360″ last week? Of course not. Do they want to know about Brad and babies? Of course!

So the celebrity magazine condenses the interview down to its gossipy core. This editing job requires liberal use of the ellipsis, some brackets and a whole lot of chopping. The result removes any mention of the issues that Jolie wanted to talk about. The exclamation mark on the headline is the capper.
