14. Google follow-up on this faux story
Edited on Sat Oct-25-08 09:03 AM by Fly by night
When I Googled "Decatur County Chronicle Obama" this morning, ten of the first twenty hits were to this faux story published on Tuesday in a weekly paper with a circulation of 2,700. (WTF!!!)

None of the hits were to my debunking of the story. And remember, as of yesterday (Friday) afternoon, I had been the only person to call anyone in Decatur county to verify (not) the story.

As a patriotic act, I will email those ten "hits" this afternoon and correct their impressions. It will be interesting to see if corrections/updates are given, as they were posted quickly on BradBlog and on Voters Unite. (Thanks Brad and John.)
