When I click on a news headline, it comes up empty. Why is that?
News headings stated in ALL CAPS are simply headlines used to inform clients on major news without outlying information. This is why the “empty” message appears when you double click on an ALL CAPS headline. However, news headings in small caps will contain a summary pertaining to the subject.
