The Rape Tunnel and the dangers of not doing research

On Monday, Gawker posted a story about a pretty far fetched art installment called The Rape Tunnel.

Of course, it turned out to be a hoax. None of the names or places showing up in an online search should have raised suspicions, if Gawker had spent the time looking into it.

I guess it's an example of the dangers of just copying and pasting from whatever comes across your desk, without taking the time to research or think about the story.
