Dumb Headline

This may be the dumbest headline ever on a New York Times article:

Selling Off Apache Holy Land: What motivated Congress to give Oak Flat, a sacred Apache site, to a mining company that will certainly destroy it?


What does the writer think motivated Congress? How about the same thing that normally motivates Congress to take something from Party A and give to it to Party B?

The bribes—oh excuse me, campaign contributions and important fact-finding trips—paid to members of Congress by Party A.

It's not like this is rocket surgery....
