Yahoo! News takes it to the Associated Press


If you've heard about the woman who reportedly swam across the entire Atlantic Ocean, Yahoo! News is here to crush that vision.

Apparently it was a hoax.

My favorite part of this article is this quote:
Yet, somehow, the AP ran the story even though a few seconds of thought and a pocket calculator was enough to disprove it.

Ouch. Take that, AP!

The AP definately rose to the level of journalism I've come to expect from them.
