Who writes these headlines?

In this case, TV station newswriters who often haven't headline tagged or slugged a story since journalism school. Which may be a bit unfair, since a lot of them are college or junior college interns, [in the newspaper racket, we used to call 'em *cubs*] as often chosen more for their HTML computer skills than their rewrites of wire service copy.
