Whoa: Politico publishes botched headline about troops killed in Afghanistan

Earlier this morning, at least two U.S. troops were killed when a firefight broke out at an Afghanistan police station. And when Politico published an AP report on the events, the story was accompanied by a very unfortunate headline gaffe:

Politico has added an editor’s note explaining that the “haha” was not related to the story.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story included unrelated text that was inadvertently written into the headline field. The text was not connected to the story but part of a separate conversation. We regret the error.
