CNN Publishes Real News Story For April Fools' Day
ATLANTA, GA—Fooling thousands of readers in a prank that the cable news organization said was "just for fun," CNN published a real news story for April Fools' Day this year.
The story simply contained a list of facts, with no embellishment, editorializing, or invented details. The story also didn't cite shaky "anonymous sources" and only quoted firsthand witnesses to the event. It was completely factual without any errors whatsoever.
Baffled CNN fans immediately knew something was up.

I remember this one from last year.
It was an absolute classic then; hogged the top line on "recent posts" for about half an hour before the mods shifted it.
Let's bring back the original.
