    Default About the press language.

    Hi!
    - President Obama to visit Darwin, Australia's frontier town.
    Someone asks why "To VISIT" is used in this case?

    1- Person 1 answers:
    - President Obama to visit Darwin, Australia's frontier town. = President Obama is due to visit Darwin, Australia's frontier town.

    2- Person 2 answers:
    - - President Obama to visit Darwin, Australia's frontier town. = President Obama will visit/visits Darwin, Australia's frontier town.

    Which is correct, please?

    "is due to visit" = "will visit" = "is scheduled to visit" = "is going to visit" = "to visit" (in the context posted)
