Left Spin on O'Reilly?

I was visiting Bill O'Reilly's website recently, and was surprise to find that he had linked to a freep.com article without bothering to de-spin the title ("No Spin Zone?"). The article (here) was about a pair of sisters who exploited a loophole in military appropriations to combat zones in order to charge outrageous shipping fees.
The article, rather than being titled something along the lines of "Rogue Contractors Defraud Government," was titled "Military Pays $998,798 to ship two 19-cent washers."
Blame the victim much? Or just defame the military?
