News headlines about white powder

Sometimes copywriters crack me up. I couldn’t resist commenting on this. Today, the following Reuters headlines were posted within 45 minutes of each other:

First headline:    “NY Times sent suspicious substance in envelope”

Second headline:  “UPDATE 1-NY Times receives white substance in envelope”

So which was it? Did they SEND or RECEIVE the powder???
