Spoof moon landing story dupes Bangladeshi newspapers

(AFP) - 4 days ago

DHAKA - A Bangladeshi newspaper was forced to print an apology Thursday after running an article that said astronaut Neil Armstrong had admitted his 1969 moon landing was part of an elaborate hoax.

The story, which first ran on US satirical news website http://www.theonion.com/ on Monday, said that Armstrong had been convinced by a conspiracy theorist that the Apollo 11 mission had been orchestrated by the US government.

The Daily Manab Zamin, which translated the moon story into Bengali and ran it on Wednesday, attributed the story to the Onion News Network, a web broadcast put out by The Onion, which also prints a parody newspaper.

"The report has drawn a lot of attention. We've since learned that the fun site runs false and juicy reports based on a historic incident," said the Daily Manab Zamin, Bangladesh's only tabloid newspaper.

"The moon landing one was such a story, which received numerous hits on the Internet.

"The truth is that Neil Armstrong never gave such an interview. It was made up. We are sorry for publishing the report without checking the information."

Another Bangladeshi newspaper, The New Nation, ran the story in its print edition and online on Thursday.

"We thought it was true so we printed it without checking. We didn't know The Onion was not a real news site," associate editor Hasanuzzuman Khan told AFP.
