"Mystery mushroom" discovered in China

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

This is what happens when you censor the Internet in a whole country.

From last weekend's edition of Xi'an Up Close, an investigative journalism program: reporter Ye Yunfeng is in Liucunbu village, where locals have discovered a strange looking fungi-like plant that even their elders haven't seen before.

The following day, the TV station released the following apology:
An open letter to all netizens and viewers: Hi everyone, one of our news reports which aired last night has made everyone laugh. This incident has been widely followed, shared and commented on. As our reporter was still very young and unwise to the ways of the world, this report has brought great inconvenience to everyone. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your criticism and correction. Please forgive our oversight!
