Evil Plan

Step 1: Post total BS reports as facts

Step 2: Wait for the KETV/OWH/insert-abbreviation-here to find it

Step 3: Watch the hilarity ensue
From Omaha to Chicago

It would be a fun scam to pull at the end of March...

It would have to be big enough to attract attention on a slower than average news day, and yet small or vague enough to elude fact checking (even at the low level done currently).

Interesting challenge.

I have no grounds to dispute anything you guys are saying, but id love to see some citations of any local news media outlet plagerizing the forum to substantiate your claims.

It's more in jest than outright an accusation of plagiarism.

Hey, what about when OWH.com lifted the aerial photo of downtown Omaha for their front page without noticing the MS Paint job that Josh did of a new ballpark in HOA Park!
