Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones: Not dead

The Associated Press moved an alert not 10 minutes ago stating that Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a U.S. Representative from Ohio, had died. Then, about a minute ago, it recanted that alert with this gem of comedic gold:

Kill the APNewsAlert saying U.S. Rep.

Stephanie Tubbs Jones has died. A doctor says she is in critical condition.

Yes, its very sad that someone is dying, but a slow golf clap goes to The Associated Press on this one.

Play a game of dead or not dead with yourself here.

Update: Wednesday night. Rep. Tubbs Jones has died, her family reports.
