Way to go ABC News!

I saw the following headline yesterday and had to click on it: "Bill Downgraded To A Tropical Storm After Child Dies From Rogue Wave"

It makes it sound like the child dieing in the rogue wave caused Hurricane Bill to be downgraded to a tropical storm. The two items in the headline have nothing to do with each other. Using this logic, here's my headline:

"Fantasy football team looking to dominate after owner ate steak last night."

Also, what the hell is a rogue wave? Aren't all waves "rogue?" I mean, is there a set standard for waves and this wave broke away from that?

Lastly, if you read the story, a man took his 7-year-old and 12-year-old to watch the waves and then got hit with one and swept into the ocean. You got 2 kids with you, shouldn't you be as far away from "rogue waves" as possible?
