The news agency Rooters, issued a warning today that breaking news reports were being rubbished by a top 'spoof site'.
It appears that the satirical website, 'The Spoof', has been publishing breaking news stories and then discrediting them by adding a disclaimer that - quote 'the story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.'
The National Association of Journalists issued a strong rebuke to the management of 'The Spoof', following these allegations, pointing out that their members relied on their stories to support their loved ones.
A source close to the management of Rooters pointed out that it was difficult to spot that the spoof stories were fictitious because of their quality and depth.
Consequently, it has issued the advice that until further notice, all stories published by the ground breaking satirical site must be considered to be genuine and true.
Speaking on behalf of the management, a 'Spoof' spokesperson added that it could understand how professional writers could duped into believing that its stories were true.
He added that stories such as 'Bush explodes at Britney's sex bomb remark', and 'Britney's Haunted Bra' were examples of how hard it is to spot the spoof from the real story.
Despite the warning, 'The Spoof' management declared that the disclaimer would continue to be added to all published stories in order to protect the human rights of their writers.
