Reports of Joe Paterno's death incorrect

The Middletown Press was among the news outlets that reported tonight that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had died. The Press sent out text alerts and tweeted the news — based on a report from CBS Sports — before a Paterno family spokesman said the reports of his death were false. When the correction came after the initial reports, a story with the family denying Paterno's death was posted on our website. Paterno, who has lung cancer, was in serious condition tonight, his family said.
