They just did it again ( ??? )

Every once in awhile, i'll see a news story on the local ( usually ) or national news, and i'll become interested in it--- But when i try to find out more about it on the interweb, i won't be able to find anything on it at all.
Was it a Joke Story ?
Why would a reputable News Station run such things ?
i have a sense of humor like anyone else, but i don't get this ?

This morning; i distinctly saw a blurb story on Good Morning America where they had a picture of the Sun and the Story was about a huge Sun-Spot that had recently appeared.
The Image that they had up showed a huge Darkened Sun-Spot covering the Top third of the sun, with flecks of smaller Sun-Spots below that.
i have a limited interest in Astronomy, but this picture was ridiculous, I've never seen anything like this.
The Announcer guy then took note that it was very unusual, but the scientists said that there wasn't anything to worry about, and then he like 'winked' or something, like he knew that that was just wrong, or that the scientists were leading us on or something, something.

Obviously; If this were a real story, It would be either Big Big News or There is a Massive Cover up going on, But if the Sun-Spot really were as big as the one depicted; The amount of sun shine today would be severely diminished.

What was this all about?

Did i dream the whole thing ?
