Yeah, you know what I'm talking about... the April Fools' article about Bush. Not only is it being displayed on ATSNN as a valid story, but it's been highlighted in flashing red lights-- literally.

This reflects very poorly on the value of whoever it is that makes these decisions. It was a clever article, and well-written, but it does not constitute news... it belongs in the Mud Pit, if anywhere.

I'm disappointed to see such glaring evidence of left-wing domination here; I really am. I hope that you'll reconsider such acts in the future.

I don't see any problem with such an article being shown on April fools day.

Good on ATSNN for making a joke

You do not see a newspaper printing an article that is fake and a joke on april fools day do you? I have never seen one, so why is it acceptable on ATSNN? It should not be allowed. Who ever allowed this to happen made a poor judgement call. I am ashamed at the people who thought this up. I think the people who came up with the idea should appologize for tarnishing the reputation of ATSNN.

I feel your pain. What you are saying is that you would like to see more right-wing biased reporting/satire on April fool's? As for "glaring evidence of left-wing domination" - Would you rather have fascism running amok on these boards, is that what you want? I don't see how this piece should be relegated to the Mud-pit. It's April fool's Man! Get yourself together!

Aren't you supposed to complain using the correct channels? If you did, I stand corrected. I think you should be allowed to write your own satire about Kerry being replaced by a Clinton.

As Nerdling says in the story, "If any of you actually got taken in by this, then you dont deserve to vote, Happy April Fools 2004!"

Lets not take ourselves so seriously. Sometimes we need to laugh and let loose. People that come to this site have a sense of humor and know not to take this type of thing negatively.

Wow, okay, calm down, Taquito. I never said I wanted right-wing propaganda out there either... you see, news is not meant to be any sort of propaganda, left or right, humorous or no.

Your rather sensationalist reply and urgings to "get myself together" have been duly noted, as has your own rather interesting incapacity to take a balanced view of the situation. Thank you, and good night.

Well, I just want to put in my opinion.

I'm not okay with it either.
