    The News

    MSN and ITN reported this story as real, and it's not even april 1st.
    Seriously, who works at these news channels, do they actually get payed money?
    What other crap do they pass off as real news?

    I couldn't find any more information on it than the video itself. When I Google "huang sheng mirage" I get lots of links to the same video. But there doesn't appear to even be such a place as Huang Sheng city, or at least not that I can manage to find through Google. Presumably it is yet another case of the media misreporting something. If there really was a spectacular mirage, we'll hear the whole story eventually.

    I pay no attention whatever to what the "news" media reports. I find I have more peace of mind that way.

    the journalists at ITN and MSN must be new to youtube or something.

    I thought I would help out, so I found the next big story for them.
    Dinosaurs are back!
    Wonder if they will pay me for all the hard journalistic work I did to get this real story.

    That's supposedly down to some dodgy translating - people saying the mist makes it look like a mirage. You'd think someone could have checked the facts first...

    This seems appropriate enough:

    The Daily Mail..."Look at these highly intrusive pictures of a celebrity trying to have a nice holiday, taken by a creepy old man hidden in a bush, can you see any cellulite? No, well it's here...(ringed in red)." *shudder*

    well i like this video and the story has also impressed me so much but 1 thing which i want to add is various private tv channels are not giving pay to there employers 2to3 months and some times they cross the limit till then 5 months so its very bad with the employers who work in these types of tv channels so i am against of it .
