• Iranian News Agency Tricked by The Onion

    I knew President Obama has always had trouble with the rural white working-class demographic, but the Fars News Agency, self-described as "Iran's leading independent news" outlet, reports some truly troubling statistics

    TEHRAN (FNA)- According to the results of a Gallup poll released Monday, the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than US President Barack Obama…

    According to the same Gallup poll, 60 percent of rural whites said they at least respected that Ahmadinejad doesn't try to hide the fact that he's Muslim.

    Man, I just read the same report in The Onion. What are the odds that a satirical story would be immediately followed by a totally real scoop by the Iranian media?

    It's literally unbelievable!
