贝索斯点错鼠标?新华网又中招假新闻
2013年08月08日 快速评论
贝索斯之所以购买《华盛顿邮报》是因为点错鼠标?开什么国际玩笑?不过,还真有人信了。《国际在线》网站援引6日《纽约客》专栏内容,发布此消息。新华网、人民网等媒体都转载了该文。随后,新浪网国际新闻官方微博@微天下辟谣称,此文来自《纽约客》的一个以假新闻著称的专栏。

  《国际在线》网站在其新闻频道援引6日《纽约客》专栏内容,发布题为“亚马逊创始人称收购《华盛顿邮报》非本意 系点错鼠标”的报道。报道称亚马逊创始人贝索斯收购华盛顿邮报是个美丽的错误,只是在刷邮报网页时手抖点错鼠标买下来的。

  新华网、人民网等部分国内主流媒体也纷纷转载《国际在线》该文。

  随后,新浪网国际新闻官方微博@微天下辟谣,称事实上,这篇文章发表于美国谐星和作家安迪·鲍罗威茨在纽约客的专栏“鲍罗威茨报告”。这个专栏就和“洋葱新闻网”一样,致力于打造优质假新闻(即讽刺性新闻)。

  另据网易科技频道消息,在国外,除了洋葱新闻外,热衷于制造假新闻的网站还有很多,比如印度的Faking news、英国的The Daily Mash、德国的Titanic、美国的The Spoof和美国的News Mutiny ,都是写讽刺新闻的一把好手。

  借用美国讽刺新闻网站News Mutiny的宣传语,“这些新闻,都是聪明人眼中的讽刺文章,蠢货眼中的新闻。”开个玩笑,你中招了吗?

  亚马逊创始人称收购《华盛顿邮报》非本意 系点错鼠标

  国际在线专稿:据《纽约客》8月6日报道,电子商务企业亚马逊公司创始人杰弗里·贝索斯(Jeff Bezos)将支付2.5亿美元现金,已个人名义收购《华盛顿邮报》。就在各家媒体纷纷揣测贝索斯这一举动的背后意义时,贝索斯却表示收购这件事“太混乱了”,自己只是不小心点错了鼠标而已。

  报道称,贝索斯身家252亿美元,在美国《福布斯》富豪榜位列第19名。鉴于贝索斯曾引领图书进入数字时代,媒体纷纷猜测这次的收购能否帮助《华盛顿邮报》适应“新媒体”浪潮冲击。就在各家媒体还没回过神的时候,贝索斯于当地时间8月6日在接受媒体采访时无奈的表示,自己并没有购买意愿。

  贝索斯称:“我猜我当时可能正在浏览他们的网页,并没有注意到自己点了什么。我什么都不想买!”“我绝不可能购买《华盛顿邮报》,我都没读过它。”

  贝索斯表示,他的美国运通卡在6日上午收到了一笔2.5亿美元的付款通知。在咨询过信用卡公司后,他才知道自己需要花费2.5亿美元购买《华盛顿邮报》,贝索斯形容这“不是一般的疯狂”。

  贝索斯称自己给《华盛顿邮报》的客服打了电话,想解释这个误会,但是只收到了几句搪塞。“我一直在跟他们说我也不知道事情怎么会这样,我不想收购。但是事情好像没有转还的余地了。”

  AMAZON FOUNDER SAYS HE CLICKED ON WASHINGTON POST BY MISTAKE

  SEATTLE (The Borowitz Report)—Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, told reporters today that his reported purchase of the Washington Post was a “gigantic mix-up,” explaining that he had clicked on the newspaper by mistake.

  “I guess I was just kind of browsing through their website and not paying close attention to what I was doing,” he said. “No way did I intend to buy anything.”

  Mr. Bezos said he had been oblivious to his online shopping error until earlier today, when he saw an unusual charge for two hundred and fifty million dollars on his American Express statement.

  After investigating with the credit-card company, he was informed that he had been charged for the purchase price of the entire Washington Post, which, he said, was “pure craziness.”

  “No way in hell would I buy the Washington Post,” he said. “I don‘t even read the Washington Post.”

  Mr. Bezos said he had been on the phone with the Post‘s customer service for the better part of the day trying to unwind his mistaken purchase, but so far “they’ve really been giving me the runaround.”

  According to Mr. Bezos, “I keep telling them, I don‘t know how it got in my cart. I don’t want it. It‘s like they’re making it impossible to return it.”
