Way to go AP; keeping those mainstream media clients in line!
Meanwhile, over in the Blogosphere Technorati reports 1,976 blog posts on "Paris Hilton" AND "Elephant."
So either its a bogus rumor, or its goofy, true and real... in which case the news is more about silly publicists and the power they yield. As in, "Kill the following: A publicist for Paris Hilton says Hilton never made any comments about helping drunken elephants in India."
Remember the old saw about you cant make this stuff up?
