It’s April Fools, guys!

April 1, 2009

Maybe it will be true in a (near) future. Maybe everything can be explained in just 140 words in some Twitter format, and maybe some daily journals are considering to do some movements towards these new newswriting formats but…


…today it is April Fools, and The Guardian published… a joke. Anyway, some other media took it seriously.


One thing it is true: when you are doing journalism -needless to say, in print, audiovisual or on the Internet- it is not just reproduce information as quickly as possible: you always need to confirm information.

Otherwise… oooooops!!! You’ll have to reconsider your news…
