Fail Of The Day: Iran’s Press TV Falls For Satirical Post

Iran’s Press TV have bildted themselves and fallen for a satire article. On a Zionist site no less.

They have since (unfortunately) discovered their embarrassing error and remove the report, which was located at this link up until about 30 minutes ago:

Here are some screenshots of their report before it was yanked:


The report was based on this satirical piece by The Israeli Daily, which they even cite!

The icy relationship between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu hit a new low this week, with the American president ‘defriending’ the Israeli Premier on Facebook.
Though it’s unclear exactly when Obama made the move to delete his Israeli counterpart as a Facebook friend – most likely around the time Netanyahu accepted Boehner’s controversial invite – Netanyahu only learned of the snub yesterday, according to a source close to the prime minister.

“Bibi was looking at [Attorney General] Eric Holder’s page, and he happened to check what friends they had in common,” the source explained. “And he sees [Secretary of State John] Kerry, Bill [Clinton], Hill [ary Clinton], Fabio, but no Obama. So he goes to Obama’s page, and sure enough it says ‘Add Friend.’ We were in complete disbelief.”

While the White House had no official comment, a source close to the President said Obama had reached his maximum allowed Friends and wished to add Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif after a pleasant meeting on Iran’s nuclear program. The source said the defriending wasn’t personal, but conceded Obama had gotten sick of seeing Sara Netanyahu on his newsfeed and the Prime Minister’s daily invitations to play Candy Crush.

How they could treat that seriously is anyone’s guess.

Now if only Obama treated their nuclear ambitions this seriously.
