Maybe I'm in the minority on this but 1 April has become the day I try to avoid looking at ANY news sites because everyone is trying to be cutesy with their jokes, when all I really want is the true news. I think it's a maturation mark for a news site when they just don't participate, or clearly mark items as fake. For example, you'll note that CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc don't sit there reporting fake stories all day on 1 April... they understand some of us still live in the real world and need real news on that day too.

You're absolutely right, they save their fake reporting for every other day of the year. Zing!

It makes me happy that you didn't include Fox News

I couldn't include FOX News because every day is April Fool's for them.

Lame political meme is lame.

I'm coming at this from the opposite angle: I was actually looking for April Fool's content all day yesterday and largely came up empty--Google and Blizzard were about it. And even then there was nothing even close to previous years' WiiHelm, Alpine Wii, or Alanis singing a slow, tragic version of "My Humps".April 1, 2011: Losing.

Burying others for expressing the lameness of intellectually dishonest political attacks: Double lame. (I'll excuse you if you buried solely because the "X Y is X" meme is, itself, lame, but given my experience here, I doubt that's the motivation.)
