"Stop the presses!"

Katharine Q Seelye of the New York Times wrote this story [Link] about the dilema facing newspaper editors when the news came out that the trapped West Virginia miners were dead, after they were first reported as being alive. According to Seelye:

Most papers were reporting that the trapped West Virginia miners had been found alive. When they learned that all but one of the miners were in fact dead, about 3 a.m. Eastern time, many papers in the East had ended their press runs, and those westward were nearing their closes.
