CNN Tweeted Pele is Dead (He's Not)

[tweet https://twitter.com/AntDeRosa/statuses/449545637961285632]

The official Twitter account of CNN's morning show, New Day, attempted to break some pretty big news this morning when it tweeted that Pele, the guy most people consider the greatest soccer player of all time, had died. It would have been a good scoop, if Pele were dead:

There's a lot to start on here, but I want to focus on the fact that the New Day account tweeted it, and not the much, much more popular CNN Breaking News Twitter account. That would seemingly suggest they thought the news was already out there, which raises a whole lot of other questions with no good answers.
