"This Day". Don't click it. We've been doing this for 15 years and have been accused of being biased to about everyone. Sorry we can't can't praise the side you like 100% of the time.

The corny headlines would be another reason to just learn HTML, PHP, CSS and the rest and write history the way you wish it happened. Hope you don't think any of this was meant in a sarcastic or dismissive tone.

No need: the tone of the writing is sarcastic and dismissive, beyond any doubt.

The phrase "history the way you wish it happened," likewise implies that those headlines describe history the way it did happen... which of course is a joke, but not a very funny one, similar to "Hitler wins great victory at_____!"

I'm sure that Der Spiegel had plenty of those types of headlines, since state-biased propaganda will always slant the news in its own favor... but that just ain't very kosher.
