Indy Falls For Onion Spoof

Cringe-inducing stuff from the Indy today. Quite how they still don’t know the Onion is a satirical website is beyond Guido, yet they have managed to run a ‘quote’ from a supposed CNN boss on Miley Cyrus’ dancing, clearly the only story of the day:

Finally addressed some hours later:

Doh!

    Too bad the Indy doesn’t do research – the Miley story has some meat in it.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
