The problem is that this headline is not news. Indeed, the circumstances were so striking that I wrote a post about it last June! Even more interesting, however, is that it was not really the headline for the story by Gillian Wong that followed! The real news is that five people were just indicted for their role in this kidney sale. Citing the Xinhua News Agency as her source, Wong elaborated on who those five people were:
The defendants include a surgeon, a hospital contractor, and brokers who looked for donors online and leased an operating room to conduct the procedure, Xinhua said.
Now we are getting at something more like a real news story!
