Milwaukee's humor weekly humor/satire tabloid, The Onion, is
available elsewhere too. (When I was in Rochester, N.Y., for the
MUFON symposium a few years ago, I saw it for sale in a large
newspaper shop there.) But here in Milwaukee we have the
advantage of being able to pick it up for free at racks around
town.

Anyway, I can assure you that the article Historians Admit To
Inventing Ancient Greeks was indeed in print, in the issue
with the cover date of Oct. 7, 2010 (Vol. 46, Issue 40), pp. 1
and 10. (A lot of the paper's online articles - at least in the
AV Club section, which has its own Web site - are _not_ in
print.)

Of course, that doesn't make it true, or even a serious attempt
at journalism. No more so than its cover article awhile back
about how the U.S. Capitol Building was being gutted and turned
into a theme park. At that time, some lazy Chinese reporter
stole the article and it was printed in China as a real news
item.
