Report of Steve Jobs' death mistakenly repeated on CBS News.com
Reports say that Steve Jobs has passed away. Stay tuned for more updates." To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of Jobs' demise were greatly exaggerated. The false report came from "What's Trending" and while CBS did pass it on during the show, the network has no news partnership with them. To make matters worse, other news agencies reporting on the story were attributing the report to a CBS News Twitter account.
CBS cut its ties with the 28 year old creator of "What's Trending", Shira Lazar, immediately after Friday's show. Apologies were sent out on all fronts and the offending tweet was removed, although thanks to re-tweeting, it does live on. As does Steve Jobs. "What's Trending" has been removed from the CBS web site and the network has removed all connections with Lazar.
