News agencies cry wolf

I’m starting to collect the number of false stories that have been hitting mass media lately:

  1. a boy cries as teenagers hang his dog in front of him, only to reveal later that his story was a big fat lie.
  2. enron’s ken lay goes missing, then is found.
  3. the most recent retraction? the airline toilet suction horror has been debunked (props: rebecca)
