CBS So Sorry We Said Steve Jobs Died

9/9/2011 1:20 PM PDT

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.
