Another "news" rewrite

BUSINESS NEWS: Xerox Corp.'s earnings plunge | | Courier-Post:
Xerox Corp.'s fourth-quarter earnings plunged as the printer and copier maker booked hefty charges for layoffs and other restructuring costs. The company also forecast first-quarter profit below Wall Street expectations."

"Plunge" is another way to attract eyeballs, I guess. Put it in the column with "meltdown", "bail out". Do a search through newspaper headlines and you'll get most of the others.
