bury the lead

In journalism, to open a news article with secondary or superfluous information, thus relegating the central premise (the lead, which usually occupies this position) to a later part. "Lead" in this sense is sometimes written as "lede." I usually just skim through articles in the newspaper, so it really annoys me when they bury the lead.
