April Fool

I just spent 15 minutes trying to confirm a weird article in a local paper and found no corroboration for a story that should have been widely reported locally. Then I realized, “Aha! April Fools!”

Why do journalists do April Fool jokes? Do journalists sit around the newsroom saying to each other, “What can we do to make people mistrust us even more than they already do?”

I hate April Fool’s Day and practical jokes in general.
