    The story about the Romanian couple who met on the internet and named their first child "Yahoo" was entirely fabricated. The reporter modified his own child's birth certificate through a photoshop program to make the false evidence. The reporter has since been fired.

    The poor bastard. He was just in the wrong place, in the wrong time. Why, in America, they used to heap awards and icon status on reporters who did that. What a bummer!

    Read the article. He was in Romania. They stopped giving awards to false journalists when the commies moved out. Too bad CBS can't copy that.
