Jake Tapper Is an April Tool

Hah, one guy got fooled by a lame April Fools' Joke: ABC's senior smugness correspondent Jake Tapper. He even forwarded a hoax story to his colleagues before he caught himself.

It was neither a convincing nor a funny fake news story, and the link in the email didn't actually work, but still, Tapper, that intrepid newsman, forward the email about how torture memo author John Yoo had been arrested in Italy to the "internal news distribution system."

And then he Twittered something about how it wasn't very funny anyway, that story, which, fair enough, but seriously? You couldn't get the link to work and you still forwarded? Let's hope Nigerian princes never get ahold of your email address.
