Just the codes Reuters uses to keyword/categorize the articles, showing up in the headline field instead of a hidden field. Probably have some folks here with newsroom experience who can explain more.

This is a hiccup in Reuters' delivery of the story to online clients, whether due to system glitch or human error. Most of these are Reuters category or topic codes: WASH -- US Government news, MEAST -- Middle East, AF -- Afghanistan, POL -- domestic politics, DIP -- diplomacy, SY -- Syria, PK -- Pakistan, US -- United States of America, IR -- Iran.

OLRTXT? Some kind of coding or tag. Could be as simple as "online regular text." GEN I haven't seen on a list, but probably stands for "general," as opposed to some story that goes to narrower categories of clientele or some such. Dunno on LIST1 and CTXT, but similar stuff. And I'm betting USAMA is the code for "Massachusetts."

Welcome to the world of confusing wire service metadata that often ends up in the wrong field. Or a message from Cthulhu.
