Layers Of Editors, Epic Fail
The woman who swam the Atlantic? Well, she didn't really so much "swim" it as "ride across it in a boat." She may have taken a dip now and then. Naturally, the AP reported Figge's "accomplishment" last week with nary a word of skepticism. Of course, just crunching the numbers, or even taking a casual look a the numbers, would have made the hoax obvious.
If they can be taken in so easily on a harmless sports story, how gullible are they when they are being willfully deceived elsewhere?
