Taken from oldmotherchaos:

WBAY TV, the local station for Green Bay, Wisconsin, put an Associated Press news article up on their website without checking it too closely.

The article described Dubya's victorious re-election in precise, "It's happening now" detail. Complete with up-to-the-minute electoral tallies, no less.

The original article vanished as soon as WBAY realised what the hell they'd published, but it was too late -- boingboing had already grabbed a screenshot. Check it out:




The Associated Press are saying that the item was a "test article" that WBAY picked up on by mistake. That's all well and good, except that there is no such thing, either in journalism or publishing....

I don't think I need to add anything to this.
