Yeah, but the point is Baalthazaq he's got his own U.S. show.
Which means he's no longer here.
Although even if he was over here it just gives Ian Hislop another excuse to tear him a new hole.
Again.

It's also what Piers Morgan said.

He went from being a fired Daily Mail editor, to News of the World Editor, to his own talk show on US TV.

Thanks Murdoch!

The story may be bogus but it's still true.

That's what Dan Rather said. Where is he now?

Despite it being a stunt, I still think it's probably true

i love how it was the readers of the news site, not the actual reporters, who did the research on this and found it to be bogus.
THAT's why journalism is failing

Already knew that it is a hoax. There's no way that Safari's users could have IQ that high.

Way to go IE users. Maybe you should throw a party and invite all your Netscape and AOL friends. You know, play minesweeper till 3AM.

the first clue it was bogus was the claim they had tested people for IQ...to get an accurate idea of the ability of someone takes test administered by professionals, not something you do online. Has it ever occurred to anyone that the first thing they teach you in advertising is to compliment someone, and associate that compliment with your product?

hungry beat did something similar to see how many news peeps would run it. It was something about gullibility in major cities in Australia.

Look.
I use IE.
Reason: Im lazy. Not stupid. Lazy. I got national scholar. Im at a top notch school. I got a 140 IQ for chris-sakes.
Stop hating on IE!
(Also, I modded my browser to run faster. Now it's faster than firefox/chrome. )

It must be true, it was on the Internet. Shame on the BBC.

Bogus, but still probably true, you would have to have a pretty low I.Q. to still use IE...
