Incorrect: "I will make the headline tomorrow?" Correct: "I will make the headlines tomorrow?". Nothing wrong in the headline there. We tend to treat it as a singular. Just subtle word play I guess.

Good thing somebody else did not copy The Economist's look.

Hmmm... Does anyone else think that there's a pronoun problem here? Or is the right side of my brain just not accepting a mild play on words?

could mean "making it" to the headlines.

"making them" would be better on two occasions of course.

Hmmm...I think the 'OR' is outa place. Shouldn't it be 'The difference between reading headlines AND making it'....i donno...just my take on it.

The word "headlines" means more than one. The word "it" means one. The headline is structured incorrectly. Should be: The difference between reading the headlines or making them.
