MORGAN FREEMAN, R.I.P.
Year: 2010
How he did NOT die: Last week, as a joke amongst friends, Twitter user @originalcjizzle created a fake retweet from CNN reporting that Freeman had died: “RT @CNN: Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home<< wow legendary actor #RIPmorganfreeman.” CNN vehemently denied reporting the hoax story, but the fact that we fully believed they would misreport something says a lot about the state of journalism in 2010. Good night, and good luck.
