I think the real problem here is that media sources are turning to automated scrapers instead of using human beings to investigate and report the news. Look at some of the sources that rebroadcast this fake report. The BBC, Telegraph, Mirror, and MSN news. How can anyone take an article they read from a news source seriously knowing that automated scripts likely wrote it. This is a growing trend as well. A growing number of news articles are the result of automated reporting scripts. From my point of view, if news agencies want to increase the speed with which they report and the number of stories they can get out there by using automated scripts they should at least use their existing humans to proof and sanity check stuff before it goes out.
