Headline, one making a lot of noise? (8)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'headline' is the definition.
(I know that screamer is a type of headline)

'one making a lot of noise?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'one' could be 'me' (a setter might use 'one' to humourously mean 'me') and 'me' is located in the answer.
'a' is within the answer.
'lot' could be 'c' and 'c' is located in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for screamer that I've seen before include "Sensational newspaper headline - mere scar (anag)" , "Remarkable thing; noisy person; large water bird" , "powerful shot" , "South American bird with loud, harsh cry" , "express delivery" .)
