    I think that with the shear volume of information, and the … lowering professionalism? … of journalism, we’re going to see a LOT more of these “whoopsie”s. Case in point: stories from The Onion, The Daily Currant, and freaking-Stephen Colbert (!) keeping getting picked up by “reputable” news media.

    Once upon a time, journalists had editors to check these things.

    • Nobody quote me on this, we’re off the record here, but I, for one, am heavily in favor of making crazy shit up and posting it to see what happens. Though just a notch more subtle than that how it’s done in this Onion article. Just a notch. Thanks Philip.
