It's On Television, It Must Be True

There are fake news videos, and then there are really great fake news videos.  I think this one, courtesy of The Onion, is really well done.

Diebold Accidentally Leaks Results Of 2008 Election Early

I've seen a couple of earlier Onion stories pasted up in the mainstream news as real stories, so I'm kind of hoping this one shows up somewhere, too.  

If you like this kind of thing, there are tons of examples on the internet.  One of the earliest - and best - is from 1957: the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest.
