CBS

So Sorry We Said

Steve Jobs Died

9/9/2011 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

CBS's web series -- "What's Trending" -- tweeted an item which said, "Reports say that Steve Jobs has passed away.  Stay tuned for more updates."

But almost immediately, they yanked the item and tweeted an apology of sorts: "Reports of Steve Job's [sic] death completely unconfirmed."

Notice CBS didn't say it wasn't true -- they're just saying they have no idea one way or the other.

Oops.

He's is probably close, if not already gone.
He did a great job with Apple and he and his
family should be proud.

Dang it TMZ! Your own headline and the formatting made me think he died until I read it more clearly.

Always in a rush to be first, no matter if it's true or not. Disgusting. F'ing vultures circling. And for what? Y'all should be ashamed of yourselves.

He probably is dead. He looked like a walking skeleton in those pics last week.

He did look very ill the last pic. But can't they wait until it's confirmed before it's plastered all over the web? Some shred of decency for him, out of respect?

I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. He looked awful in his most recent pictures.

Sometimes money buys longevity...sometimes it doesn't. Cancer is a hard way to go. I wish Jobs an easy passing when that comes.

Pancreatic cancer kills pretty quickly.


All that money made by setting up Chinese factories and selling Americans overpriced toys isn't gonna help him buy any extra time.

Since they didn't "deny" the fact, sadly I think he has passed and they're in the mode of "damage control" until the markets re-open on Monday.
