The AP Corrects Paris Hilton Story: Best Newspaper Correction Ever

From the Associated Press:
GAUHATI, India (AP) - In a Nov. 13 story, The Associated Press incorrectly reported that Paris Hilton was praised by conservationists for highlighting the problem of binge-drinking elephants in northeastern India. Lori Berk, a publicist for Hilton, said she never made any comments about helping drunken elephants in India.
What's sadder, the AP for reporting such stupidity as "news" in the first place, or the fact that this actually sounds like a plausible Paris Hilton story?
