A curious claim this morning by the Ministry of Truth (Provincial):

Royal Visit in the Fall
June 28, 2009

Premier Danny Williams has announced that members of the Royal Family will visit Newfoundland and Labrador this fall. Williams says Prince Charles of Wales and Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall, will include the province in their visit to Canada this fall. He says a detailed itinerary will be announced at a later date.
Premier Danny Williams has announced no such thing. As is protocol, the visit was announced today by the Governor General. Ever one to bask in reflected glory, Our Dear Premier, the Leader of The Province, didn't announce the visit... he merely "welcomed" the announcement.

Or, if you prefer, as per the original, Sunday-morning rush-job version of the headline, "Premier Welcomes Announces of Royal Visit".
