Glastonbury 2011: U2 fight! Oh... no, they don't

Spinner have an eyecatching headline on their story about U2 prepping to spoil Glastonbury:

U2 Are Infighting About Glastonbury Appearance
Infighting? Blimey - could we about to see a split? Is it band tension that a group cannot survive?

Er, no. It's a headline that the story cannot support:
the band has been fervently discussing, dissecting, constructing -- and deconstructing -- the setlist. "Everybody seems to have a slightly different opinion, which is not good news," admits Mullen.
Ah. So it's not "infighting", it's everyone having a slightly different opinion. Oh, leave it, Larry, it's not worth it.
