Response to Newsjock (Original post)

1. I've given DU a hard time now and then for being fooled by satire sites.

I hereby apologize. If the WaPo can be fooled I guess Poe's Law is now in full effect and it is no longer at all possible to distinguish satire from reality.

However, you'd think that a "respectable" newspaper like WaPo would verify its sources and/or know that the Daily Currant is a satire site. There's really no excuse for this kind of mistake by a major newspaper.
