Tabloid fires 'Yahoo baby' reporter

By Lester Haines

Published Monday 24th January 2005 14:41 GMT

Romanian tabloid Libertatea has fired the reporter who fabricated a story claiming that a couple had named their baby Yahoo, Reuters reports.

Ion Garnod walked the plank after admitting he made the whole thing up "to look good". A birth certificate accompanying the story turned out to be that of Garnod's own son. The paper's deputy ed, Simona Ionescu, said: "If it were real, it would have been a good story indeed."

Yes it would, and El Reg duly ran the heartwarmer after Reuters picked up on the human-interest piece. We consider ourselves entirely blameless in the matter. After all, if you can't trust a Romanian tabloid, then who can you trust?
