News.com.au spread Bigfoot hoax

Yep, gotta love that trustworthy media. I can see this one appearing on Media Watch next week.

News.com.au is running a story today which claims “Bigfoot body ‘found and put in freezer'” written by “staff writers”.

The story links to another site, Searching For Bigfoot, which actually declares the whole thing a hoax. News.com.au’s site doesn’t say that though, it buys the whole deal.

UPDATE 7.29am: NewForestAlex links me to this story explaining how the hoaxers are trying to make money by gaming the media to drive traffic to their site. This is happening more and more these days.
