via ‘Big Lebowski 2′ Not Actually Happening; CBS Just Got Punked – Los Angeles News – The Informer.

Haven’t we all learned, after Manny Pacquiao was falsely quoted last month as saying all gays should be “put to death,” that the Examiner is not a source to be aggregated?

CBS2 didn’t get the memo. “Lebowski fans, lift up your white russian!” the local news site wrote this morning. “The much-anticipated sequel to the 1998 hit “The Big Lebowski” is set to start filming in October, according to the Examiner.”

And where, pray tell, did the Examiner get its information?

Although there is no sourcing in the story (which should have been a tip-off in itself), LAist points to the possible inspiration: A piece on joke website Super Official News called “Announced – The Big Lebowski 2: The Dude Goes To Washington.”

Other stories on the site, which is sort of an indie Onion, include “Joe Arpaio Announces New Zombie Bath Salt Task Force Called SALTS” and “Gay Zombie Attack In Louisiana From Bath Salts Leaves 7 Dead.”
