Germany's Der Spiegel mistakenly publishes obit for President Bush

in Uncategorized by

Germany’s respected news weekly Der Spiegel mistakenly published an obituary for former President George HW Bush, hours after a family spokesman said the 88-year-old was recovering from illness.

The unfinished obituary appeared on Der Spiegel‘s website for only a few minutes Sunday before it was spotted by Internet users and removed.

NPR reports Bush was actually moved out of intensive care.
