The problem is “lead”. The past tense of lead is “led”. The only time “lead” is pronounced “led” is if you are referring to the metal. So if you read the headline and pronounce “lead” as leed (sorry, my keyboard does not do phonetics) you will see how silly it sounds. Oddly enough both tenses of “read”, while pronounced differently, are spelled the same. One of the many fun things about the English language.
