How carefully do your headline writers read the articles they caption? “Disgraced LDS leader is pulled in swift move” described how the LDS Church acted swiftly and, according to Peggy Fletcher Stack’s sources, appropriately to deal with a sexual predator in an incident that took place more than four years ago.
So why “is pulled” as if it happened last night? Why not “was pulled” or simply “pulled”? Does it just depend on what the meaning of “is” is?
