WTF?! Anchor Posts Onion Story as Real News


WSFA (Alabama) Anchor Jennifer Oravet must have had some free time on her hands and was surfing the Internet, when she came across an interesting story.

The unbelievable story stated that "a public relations firm had advised the United States to begin distancing itself from the state of Alabama as soon as possible."

Oravet posted the story on her Facebook page. The unbelievable story was just that, unbelievable, it came from the parody website the Onion (link to the story).

Oravet even called the PR company for comment. When one Facebooker called her out for posting a story from the Onion as "real news" she tried to cover herself.

By the way, nobody tell Jennifer that isn't a real tiger that is with her in the picture (we don't want to spoil it for her).
