Technically, the word journalists use is "lede."

Cheesy

On the other hand, many people think it's pompous for a bunch of journos to be picky about this.

The word "lede" became a common spelling in news room memos to distinguish it from lead ("led") used in Linotype machines commonly used to print type in news paper rooms a generation ago and more.  Both words were used frequently in internal memos, so the alternative spelling evolved to avoid confusion (or at least as I was told).

Who cares?  Newspapers and Rotary Phones are dying media.
