BBC Bias?

Here's a funny thing- on the front page of the BBC's news page is the headline "Iraq Minister Admits Death Squads". Intrigued I clicked on the link to read the story, the actual title of which is "Iraqi Minister Denies Terror Link".

Essentially the Iraq Interior Minister said that the terror gangs responsible for attacks on Sunni Muslims were not linked to his Ministry- though he said some of them were wearing the uniforms of the police, uniforms which he says can be bought off the street.

Surely there couldn't be any bias at the BBC putting such a misleading link on their front page? Not like they'll think that some people will just check the headline, accept that as the story and move on, without actually reading the article?
