Koppel duped by "phone terrorist"
Koppel duped by Subgenius Dobbs
Telling Ted Koppel, and millions of others, to go to thankyoufortakingmycall.com and watch the video, a caller named "Bob Dobbs", for a good five minutes, unfolded what appears to me to be a massive, and potentially dangerous hoax. I could be wrong, as I have not gone to the website, but at this early date, it sure seems fishy...just as the entire power outage smells of Enron and memory-dead California.
Here is what Google says about the website:
