Copy That

Wonderful.  Remember a few days ago when we brought you news that a leading Iranian news service had taken seriously an Onion article about fearless leader Ahmadinejad being more popular among rural Americans than President Obama--and then taken it in another way, plagiarizing the story.   Today the Fars agency admitted it had been snookered--but then argued that the claim in the story might still be true!

It also showed it had not exactly gotten the point about plagiarising by cutting and pasting previous corrections in U.S. outlet when THEY had been fooled by The Onion.
