Romenesko produces headline classic

Just for the record.

There's an item under the head
Teacher praises teen reporters for passing on Rose story

What did those reporters do?

I was puzzled, because I vaguely remembered the story that Pete Rose told some high school kids about his gambling on baseball, and they didn't pass it on! (Their Trappism on the point was the story, kinda.)

Then I look again. Oh. That's passing on, rather than passing on.

Don't they cover ambiguity in j-school? Or have I failed to spot the gag? (Wouldn't be the first time...)
