    I had no difficulty at all understanding the headline, but its implications certainly threw me for a loop.

    "Navy: China has not attacked U.S. aircraft carrier"


    UPI issued a statement on Friday saying its Twitter account and website had been hacked on Friday afternoon.

    "It started on Twitter, where six fake headlines were posted in about 10 minutes, starting about 1:20 p.m. Some of them were about the Federal Reserve; others contained a false report that the USS George Washington had been attacked."

    I re – read the headline at least 10 times and could not work out what it was trying to say. Only after reading the article and carefully parsing the headline again did it make sense to me.

    It still doesn't make sense to me.
