Read story before writing hed. Wait, don't.

 Sometimes you wonder why the Fair 'n' Balanced Network even bothers to write the stories, given that all the information you need is in the homepage display type. Note, above, what Floridians are mad about and what they're trying to do in Monday afternoon's lead story. Then compare it with the text at FoxBusiness:

Out-of-work Americans in Florida filed a lawsuit against Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday seeking to reinstate a pandemic relief program that paid out an extra $300 a week in unemployment benefits.

In a complaint filed late Sunday on behalf of 10 unemployed Floridians, three attorneys ... argued that DeSantis, as well as the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and its director Dane Eagle, violated their "clear legal and statutory duty to secure such benefits for employees" by prematurely ending the benefits.

The attorneys are requesting an emergency injunction to force Florida to reinstate the $300 a week benefit until the case is decided, as well as provide four weeks of retroactive benefits.

"The unemployed of Florida need these benefits to pay basic living expenses such as rent, utilities, food and medicine," the suit said.

Suppose there's a spot on the cattle train to Siberia for the poor wretch who thought they were assigned to write a story about a lawsuit?
