Lost in translation

Conspiracy theorists frequently note that the BYM News service is a tool of the Alinghi America’s Cup team, and we must admit that they do seem to often play the role of “apologists” for the Swiss team. The media site today posted a story by Franck Cammas, the highly acclaimed French multihull sailor, who is currently working with the BMW Oracle Racing team as they trial their new 90-foot trimaran. What was interesting is the headline that BYM News added to the story:

America's Cup: Frank Cammas eulogises about BMW Oracle trimaran

Eulogy? Don't we typically reserve that word for funerals?

Btw, I failed to point out that when Franck distributed his report, his headline was "French sailors aboard BMW Oracle’s “Stradivarius”

Oh yea, and BYM News spelled his name Frank, when it is correctly spelled Franck. Nope... no conspiracy here.
