140 Year Old Hot Dog fools CNN

How do you get a story picked up in a hurry if you don't have a big budget?
Easy.
These days you cook up a story and let the media and social media do the work for you.

So the Coney Island history project cooked up a story about a 140 year old hot dog being found underneath the old Feltman's kitchen. Feltman's is being torn down and Charles Feltman is credited with inventing the hot dog. (Praise be to him!)

Anyway, here's the story the news fell for. Would you believe it?

At nearly 140 years old, this Coney Island hot dog is in pretty good shape. It was recently found encased in ice underneath the boardwalk's famous Feltman's Kitchen.

Seriously. A hot dog, encased in ice. Underneath Coney.
Way to go CNN!
You took and the other media outlets took journalists another giant leap backwards.
