New York Times: Even if it does not bleed it leads!

Headline at the New York Times this morning:

"No Injuries Reported in Iraqi Elections "

What the F?
Here is the exhibit A, the lead paragraph:

"BAGHDAD — Voters turned out early and calmly on Saturday for Iraq’s provincial elections, the first in the country for four years. By noon, halfway through the voting, no one had been reported injured or killed."

Sounds like the editors were dissappointed that nobody was killed or even injured.
