Is this the Daily News or Monty Python?

I first read something about this in Rita L. Marker's Newsletter for the International Task Force on Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide, and it seemed just so far off the edge that I decided to Google it and see what turned up. Lo and behold, there it was: "State denies cancer treatment, offers suicide instead" (World Net Daily, June 19, 2008).

Happily, the story appears to have a favorable ending, not, however, thanks to the State of Oregon: Tim Christie, "A GIFT OF TREATMENT: When the Oregon Health Plan fails to cover a cancer drug, the drugmaker steps in" (The Register-Guard, June 3, 2008).
