Daily Star Duped By Spoof Website Into Chile Mine Theme Park Story

by | 15th, October 2010

THE Chile Miners are free. And the mine they escaped from is to be turned into a theme park. Well, so says the Daily Star, one day on from when the story was broken on a website called… The Spoof.

The clue is in the title of that site, something that may have passed by Star hack Steve Hughes.

Says the Spoof‘s Gabhan O’Buachalla:

The President of Chile Uno Gomez has announced the mining disaster site will be preserved as a theme park for tourists to discover ‘the spirit of Chile’

Says The Daily Star:

The Chilean Tourist Board now aims to turn the mine site into a money-spinning theme park. They are also set to offer adventure holidays including a trip underground on the rescue capsule that brought the 33 to safety.

Only one of those pretends to be newspaper. Save your money. Read Anorak…
