Last night the Twitter world exploded with news that Joe Paterno had passed away. A report by Onward State, a PSU student news site, claimed an email was sent to football players announcing the coach’s death. CBS Sports quickly ran with the story (without fact checking) and published Joe Pa’s obituary. CBS has since apologized for the false report.
Listen CBS… leave the news breaking to the real journalists, like me. I was too drunk to participate in the madness, thus saving my one reader from false news. That’s how its done!
