How dude duped UK tabloid paper The Sun

thesunduped - Share on Ovi

Dude emailed The Sun with a fake news story about a woman who spotted her husband’s car parked outside another woman’s house using Google Street View. Guess what? The Sun took the bait and published the story! From Idiot Forever:
I also got lucky because The Sun is a bunch of fools. The picture I sent wasn’t even a street view. I don’t even know if the picture was of an apartment building. It could be a commercial building for all I know. I just zoomed into London (because that’s the biggest city I know) and picked Victoria Street (because Victoria Beckham is attractive). Then I looked for some parked cars. I guess The Sun didn’t include the Street View picture in their story because they knew it wasn’t a Street View Picture at all and they just wanted to write a fun juicy story.
