Tony Dow's management team removes statement star has died (cnn.com)

How does this happen? Blame for these "race to publish" errors seems to usually fall on the writer. Not here, though, where it seems Mr. Dow's "management team" had the itchy finger.

CNN previously reported an obituary on Tony Dow, after receiving a statement from his management team confirming his death. That statement has since been rescinded and a family friend has confirmed to CNN that Dow is in hospice care.
