Pope Dead. No, Wait! 

Jesus Christ.
"Fox News Channel erroneously reported the death of Pope John Paul II on Friday afternoon, backpedaled several minutes later, then apologized to viewers for the mistake...
...at 1:23 p.m., Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith reported that the pope had died. At least initially, he did not cite sources."
So I would expect the blogosphere to fall all over itself demanding Smith resign amid all the shame and opprobrium, what with the famous Fox credibility and the future faith of the American viewer at stake. I will await the coming storm, fully satisfied that the usual journalistic ethics and demand for accountability will kick into gear. I will scratch out my signature on a contract for a bridge in Brooklyn while I wait.
