It’s a great story. A magician posts videos of him shipping himself to Vegas from upstate New York via UPS. The Feds investigate. Turns out it’s a hoax and a publicity stunt. Hilarity ensues.
So far, so good. But you’re reading this online. What’s your first thought?
Right: Where’s the video?
You won’t find it in the AP retelling on the Newsday.com site.
You won’t find the links in the original story, in which the Syracuse Post-Standard is punked by the magician. (You will find the non-linked name of the web site, a sure sign that this is an automated port of a newspaper story)
And you won’t find them in the follow-up story on the Post-Standard either.
