East Meets West?

I was perusing the headlines on, as I often do, and one caught my eye:

Major Quake Rocks Northwest Nevada

with a link to KRXI, the Fox affiliate in Reno. Northwest Nevada is where the Burning Man festival is held. Imagine my shock and amazement on opening the article when I saw the opening sentence: "A strong earthquake shook rural northeastern Nevada Thursday...." Yes, in fact, the quake was in northeastern Nevada, near the Utah line, nowhere near the Black Rock desert. To their credit, they've already fixed the headline, but I still found it amusing.
