False report of Bon Jovi death appears to copy Times' Jackson story
A website called "dailynewbloginternational" posted the story claiming that Bon Jovi was dead on Monday.
The story had changed some words and details, falsely reporting that Bon Jovi died in New Jersey during a world tour. But some of the sentences appeared to have been copied from the Times story on Jackson's death that ran on L.A. Now after he was stricken at his Holmby Hills mansion.
The Times said it was looking into the issue but emphasized that the newspaper was not involved in the false report.
