I hope that's a typo

I stopped my direct debit to The Tablet a couple of weeks ago; a thought-provoking journal of liberal Catholicism under its previous editor, it's become stodgy and run-of-the-mill under the new one. I'm still getting issues, though, so I flipped through the latest one and found the Sakharov Museum story under this headline: Russian museum director incited religious hatred. No inverted commas; it's just stated as fact.

The article itself is pretty neutral, so I can't tell if the headline actually reflects the paper's stance or is just a case of bad subbing (of which there has also been plenty since the change in editor). Either way, it makes me glad I've cancelled my subscription.
