Associated Press, "State Dept. plans release of Clinton emails by next January": Emails or Portions of Emails?

Today, an Associated Press article appearing in The Washington Post entitled "State Dept. plans release of Clinton emails by next January" begins:

" May 19 at 1:36 AM

WASHINGTON — The State Department has proposed releasing portions of 55,000 pages of e-mails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton by next January.

The department made the proposal in a federal court filing Monday night, in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Vice News."


Note the difference between the headline, which refers to the release of emails (possibly even all of Clinton's emails), and what immediately follows in the text, which refers to the release of "portions" of emails.

Yes, there is a difference.

[See also the same headline and the same first two paragraphs in an Associated Press article being published by ABC News, home of George Stephanopoulos.]
