From CoverAwards comes the news that Entertainment Weekly has quickly updated their latest cover in light of the terrible news of Natasha Richardson's accident. Subscribers will still get the original cover with Paul Rudd, but newstands will have the cover above. EW's managing editor Jess Cagle said the decision was made because:
“I think the newsiest story in the magazine should go on the newsstand cover, which is why we put Natasha on the newsstand cover.”

Bad journalism and blogging happened today as reports of Natasha Richardson passing away hit the wires.
Those reports and bloggers who posted the info as truth are wrong. She is alive, as we reported, and is in very serious condition.
Our thoughts and prayers are still with Natasha and her family.
Remember, if the information is repeated, it is just as bad as if you reported it. Rather be credible than have 250,000 more hits.-Dr.FB
