Polish archbishop admits cooperated with communists

That's the headline for a Reuters report on a Friday statement by Polish Archbishop Stanislaw Wielgus. The All Headline News coverage gives the story a different slant:

Archbishop Stanislaw Wielgus Denies Having Worked As Communist Informer

The two stories are covering the same statement by the same bishop.

If you really work at it, you can just barely reconcile the two headlines. The archbishop did admit to some contacts with Communist officials; he denied that he had informed on his colleagues. Which is more newsworthy: the admission or the denial? Your answer will match the headline you prefer.
