Spot The Difference

The Freakonomics blog has an interesting look at reporting at The New York Times vs. The Wall Street Journal:

Here is the Times’s headline: “Study Finds Medication Raises Suicide Risks in Young Adults.”
And here is the Journal’s: “Suicidal Thoughts Seem to Abate With Age of Antidepressant Users.”
I don’t want to get all anti-Big Pharma on anybody, but does the Journal’s headline strike anyone else as a little, um, protective?

I myself have no problem being anti-Big Pharma
