Plane crashes into IRS building

Austin, TX SEP Yesterday, when a plane crashed into a building in Austin, CNN grabbed the spotlight and the reporter tried to lead the person he was interviewing into a 9/11 scenario. "What did that remind you of? Did that remind you of anything?" the reporter asked with baited breath.

The witness, who happened to be a small plane pilot, whom the reporter was interviewing, caught on and said, "Yeah, I guess it reminded me of 9/11. There was a big ol' fireball."

Not being satisfied with the descriptions given by the pilot and not to be outdone by FOX, the reporter gave his own gory descriptions of 9/11 that was sure to have everyone watching hiding under their couches and praying to their higher power.

He spoke of the fire and the falling debris, saying that the building would collapse at any moment. Sadly, the fire marshal whom the reporter interviewed next ruined the reporter's delight and spoke on camera of the debris falling because the fire fighters were knocking out windows and trying to remove flammables that would keep the fire burning.

The reporter was further humiliated by the reports that the "government building" was an IRS building and that the man who flew the plane was going through an audit and burned his house to the ground before stealing the plane.

Later, the reporter was almost arrested after trying to burn down the fire station. He was finally apprehended after trying to steal a plane to crash into the fire station to cover his humiliation.

Bill O'Really was quoted as saying, "CNN will NEVER be another FOX! They just don't know how to bribe and intimidate witnesses like we do."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
