Who decided on headline?

“TNF cuts rank No. 2 in nation.”

That does grab one’s attention. So I read the article to find out what it is all about. A good article which makes clear that there is an alarmist by the name of Hanson who is against all commercial logging in national forests and also opposes biomass removal. TNF Supervisor Eubanks pointed out that last year’s cut represented the cumulative cut of about three years average timber sales. Don Zea, president of the California Forest Products Commission makes the point that the annual tree growth in the TNF is about 400 million board feet. An average cut of even 50 million board feet is not decimating the forest. I would make the point that not clearing biomass will result in far greater destruction in future wildfires. Demonstrated every year by nature herself.

So my question is: Who decided to use a front-page alarm headline for something that belongs in the opinions section?
