Strib blames the victim

This seems to be a disturbing trend at the Strib. Title is "Motorcyclist without helmet suffers severe head injuries after crash" leading one to believe it was the motorcyclist's own dumb fault. The first paragraph reiterates the headline. Only when you read the whole article do you find out what happened. Getting desperate as the paper declines?

A van pulled out in front of the motorcycle at an intersection on the southeast side of town, causing the collision, the patrol said.
