Submission + - Iran's News Agency Picks Up Onion Story (cnn.com) 2

J053 writes: "FARS, the Iranian news agency, ran a story about a Gallup poll which showed that "the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than U.S. president Barack Obama. “I like him better," said West Virginia resident Dale Swiderski, who, along with 77 percent of rural Caucasian voters, confirmed he would much rather go to a baseball game or have a beer with Ahmadinejad". Only problem was, it was a story from The Onion. Not only that, they took credit for it! The Onion responded by stating that "Fars is a subsidiary and has been "our Middle Eastern bureau since the mid 1980s"."
