Offbeat: Conspiracy theorist convinces newspaper The Onion’s story was real

  • We thought it was true so we printed it without checking. … We didn’t know the Onion was not a real news site.
  • The Daily Manab Zamin associate editor Hasanuzzuman Khan • Describing the thought process that led to his Bangladesh-based paper printing the false-on-its-face story “Conspiracy Theorist Convinces Neil Armstrong Moon Landing Was Faked,” which the Onion put online earlier this week. Total feather-in-cap situation for The Onion, we’re sure. • source
