Ripped from the possible headlines: How many media outlets will get lazy?

Here's a game you can play Tuesday night and Wednesday, especially if you live in Pennsylvania:

In Pennsylvania, we have a candidate named Tom Smith running for U.S. Senate. If he wins, count how many newspapers and TV broadcasts go the lazy route with the headline Mr. Smith goes to Washington. Sure, it's accurate and timely, but to me it's too easy and obvious.

If he wins, let me know how many times you see or hear this headline.
