Iran's semi-official FARS News Agency has published an apology to its "dear readers" after publishing a poll from satirical site the Onion on Friday.

A statement on the FARS website read: “We would like to apologize to all our dear viewers for the mistaken release of a fake opinion poll on our website.”   

The Onion's satirical story claimed that rural Americans preferred Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to US President Barack Obama.
