"Music Cannot Change the World, Says Neil Young"

The lede graf of a "news" story is:
Canadian folk rock legend Neil Young said he has lost all hope that music can change the world... "I know that the time when music could change the world is past. I really doubt that a single song can make a difference. It is a reality," Young told reporters.
You would be forgiven for assuming that came from The Onion. But you would be wrong: it's from AFP.
