Any of them.

You have to remember that headlines are just there to get readers - they're not intended to be 100% factually accurate (I agree it's crap how they're misused - but that's a whole other debate).

You can't expect to read a headline to get the full story; just like the old adage that you can't judge a book by it's cover.
