I swear this rag gets worse every week, especially their online news.
From the Irish Examiner
'Tom Hanks is a descendant of former American President and historical hero Abraham Lincoln.

The movie star admits he's very proud of his links to the man Americans call Honest Abe.

He says: "The Hanks family is from Kentucky and Tennessee; Abraham Lincoln's mother's name was Nancy Hanks. We have a semi-direct connection to Honest Abe Lincoln."'

Not only doe he clearly state that it is a semi-direct connection rather than a matter of ancestry but on what planet does being descended from Lincoln's mum's family make you a descendant of Lincoln himself?

Yesterday they posted some nonsense about how Kiera Knightly had been voted most sexiest woman in a poll by (and I paraphrase) "one of those men's magazines whose reporters have nothing better to be doing".
Reporting on a poll of course is legitimate news.
