It goes to show that you can't believe everything you read on the Internet. Case in point was the hoax that was launched last Friday that teen superstar Miley Cyrus was killed in a car accident on her way to the set of a Hannah Montana movie.
Not true, yet many in the mainstream media fell for it - including the clowns at Yahoo and Digg and often inaccurate Wikipedia which allowed the stories and updates to be posted without any check on sources.
In real life, Miley was out and about, making several public appearances Friday, but Yahoo news (which should know better) figures that it's better to be first than accurate. The report even had the name of the source news service "Rueters" spelled wrong.
The bogus article on the "accident" included witness testimonies saying the truck was going “at least 55 mph” and had “run a stop sign.” It was accompanied with a false Yahoo! News story screen shot and concluded by stating Cyrus was rushed to the Pacific Alliance Medical Center.
None of it was true.
Miley is alive and happy as ever and was spotted doing some very normal shopping for back-to-school supplies last week - even if it's a month later than everyone else!
