Best Fake Website (2008)

Not the Los Angeles Times

This Onion-esque satirical poke at the steadily declining real LA Times is the creation of ex-Times OC staffer Roy Rivenburg. Don't check the site every day, as stuff tends to sit there a while, but Rivenburg claims more regular updates will appear soon. Our favorite headline so far: "Let's Use Hillbillies to Find More Oil, Bush Says." Except for the jokey stories, the website looks exactly like the real one, with a bunch of hyperlinks on the left that go to funny pictures. "Work for Us," for example, takes you to a picture of Donald Trump and the message "You're Fired."
