WTF Friday, 11/6/2015

A few weeks back, Gawker ran a piece reporting that the U.S. State Department ignored a letter from Joseph Kony, in which the LRA leader “express[ed] interest in a ‘peace process'”.

At the time, many of us thought “hmm, that sounds… incorrect.” Well, Ledio Cakaj has the story on just how incorrect it was. Basically, Gawker got pranked hard, and probably should have spotted the hoax. If only because Kony would almost certainly spell the name of his rebel movement correctly…
