Fox News Falsely Reports Death Of Rep. Bill Young

Fox News solemnly announced the death of Bill Young, a longtime Republican congressman from Florida, on Thursday.

One problem: he wasn't dead.

The network wasn't alone: MSNBC's Luke Russert, for instance, tweeted the same information. Russert corrected himself, and Fox News issued an on-air apology.
