"Two Bangladeshi newspapers have apologised after publishing an article taken from a satirical US website which claimed the Moon landings were faked," reported BBC News earlier today.
The "satirical US website" in question is The Onion, well-known to most Americans, but apparently not to members of Bangladesh's news media elite.
The Onion first posted the story — "Conspiracy Theorist Convinces Neil Armstrong Moon Landing Was Faked" — on Monday, and the Bangladeshi newspapers ran it on Thursday. They realized they were idiots on Friday.
I couldn't figure out how to translate the article into Bangla (the official language of Bangladesh), but I was able to translate it into Hindi — an extremely similar language by Red State American standards.
Look how confusing this shit is!! Can you blame them for screwing it up??? I can't tell if this article is a joke or serious or a cricket match recap or what?! I'm amazed they even came close!
