    Neil Armstrong Confesses All - Moon Landings a Hoax

    Bangladeshi Newspapers mistakenly quote The Onion as factual news source


    One giant slip in Bangladesh news

    Two Bangladeshi newspapers have apologised after publishing an article taken from a satirical US website which claimed the Moon landings were faked.

    The Daily Manab Zamin said US astronaut Neil Armstrong had shocked a news conference by saying he now knew it had been an "elaborate hoax".

    Neither they nor the New Nation, which later picked up the story, realised the Onion was not a genuine news site.

    Both have now apologised to their readers for not checking the story.

    "We thought it was true so we printed it without checking," associate editor Hasanuzzuman Khan told the AFP news agency.

    "We didn't know the Onion was not a real news site."
