Yes. A Stern fan got onto CNN and claimed to have witnessed the LA airport 
shooter calling out "Artie stole my job!"  Despite the reference to Jackie 
the Joke Man, the CNN crew didn't get it, nor did the AP, which spread the 
story as fact and it took hours for it to be refuted, since it soon 
appeared on websites ... a problem with instant communication and airing 
callers live without any verification of their stories...it was our own Dan 
Billings who first pointed this out on our list last year.
