The dead can Twitter on The Colbert Report

Just a brief note to say that once again The Colbert Report best sums up what is going on in the world right now, after the celebrity deaths last week of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett the blogosphere has gone a bit celebrity death crazy with reports of Jeff Goldblum, George Clooney, Natalie Portman and Harrison Ford all surfacing and being debunked by their publicists, Britney Spears even had her Twitter account hacked with a message saying that she had died. With the speed that information can be distributed through social networking and other internet sites it is an unfortunate by-product that many false rumours can spread fast and as this clip demonstrates that these fake stories can even end up on TV as real stories.
