KSTP Directionally Impaired

Check out the headline in the story below, then read the first paragraph:

KSTP Shooting in North Minneapolis

Addresses with “North” are not found in South Minneapolis.

Dear KSTP, notice where this block is in relation to downtown Minneapolis:

This is actually their 2nd revision of the headline. It was originally “S. Minneapolis” but I refreshed the page before grabbing the screenshot.

Update: Now KSTP has removed the location within Minneapolis where the shooting took place from the headline:

KSTP Minneapolis Double Murder

Why remove the directional qualifier? Minneapolis is a pretty large area to use to describe where a double murder took place.
