See TDawg's post. News agencies, especially lately because of the "rush to be first" mentality, are duped.
-- The Onion recently became International News when Iranian State Media quoted one of their articles.
-- China's Communist Party reprinted an Onion article as real news.
-- D.C. residents fell for an Onion article that claimed school-children were taken hostage by Congress demanding $12-trillion in ransom
-- Beijing Evening News ran a story that the Onion created that Congress was moving to make room for stadiums.
