The New York Daily News tried to say it broke the news of Farrah Fawcett's death online before it even happened. Time stamp proof:

The NYDN's own story says:

Fawcett - who waged a three-year battle against anal cancer - died shortly before 9:30 a.m. in a Santa Monica, Calif., hospital, said her spokesman, Paul Bloch.

That would be about 12:30, NYC time. So when did the Daily News break the story?

First they said they broke it at noon!


Then they updated it to 12:13, still before she died.

Finally they updated it to 12:39, about the earliest it could have possibly been up.

You have to be quick, on the internet. Too quick.
