Distortive Headlines

So, I'm surfing around the NYT and I see the following headlines blaring out at me:
Man Shot at Radio Station During On-Air Appearance by Rapper 50 Cent

Hmm, I say. Who is 50 Cent and why would he want to shoot someone while he's on the air? I mean, doesn't that make like 50,000 witnesses? And so, click I go. And I realize that a man was shot WHILE 50 Cent was on the air, not BY 50 Cent.

Wouldn't one have thunk that the NEW YORK TIMES wouldn't write a headline like that?
