OT-Annarbor.com epic fail

Submitted by VivaCommieFootball on September 15th, 2009 at 8:30 PM

So, if anyone was wondering how much AnnArbor.com sucks, here's a true testament. Here's their top article: http://www.annarbor.com/news/gay-porn-director-to-invade-university-of-…

So there's a gay porn director secretly filming on Michigan's campus, as The Michigan Daily "reported today." That's pretty funny news, definitely worth swiping and posting as your lead story... Except it's an article from 2005. Ruh-roh. Maybe you shouldn't have fired 95 percent of your staff and replaced them with illiterate imbeciles who are willing to work for peanuts. And then, created the situation that allowed them to pass off other people's four-year-old work as original content.

The Daily put a disclaimer at the top of the article on their website. It reads: "For our annarbor.com visitors, this story is from 2005. It was inexplicably linked. We apologize for the inconvenience."

EDIT: The AnnArbor.com "article" has been taken down from the front page, though the link remains live.

OT: I was recruited a few years ago to do Gay Porn at a bar in Westland... they said I would get $1500 to JO or $2500 to do a scene but could never be with a woman...

I declined, of course. !

The funny thing is that the recruiter had a Michigan hat on and the other one had a Red Wing hat on. They tried to seduce me by talking Michigan football while I waited for my drinks at the bar.

A computer hacker, not a hack writer. If so, it was extremely well-played. Maybe it's from a disgruntled former Ann Arbor News employee who didn't get hired for A2.com.

Wow, last week I posted a month-old link about Justin Boren's injury that I didn't check the pub date on. I edited it to admit my epic fail but this is much worse...
