This is George Soros. He is alive and well.

But not according to Reuters. As if traditional media outlets weren’t already having a week bad enough for a year’s worth of embarrassment, Reuters accidentally published the canned [harsh!] obituary it has on file for the billionaire financier. HV contributor Vivek Ramgopal points out the sloppy journalism: “The headline says he died at XX but the article says it was XXX.”

Isn’t this yet another win for Soros? He gets to live *and* see what people will say about you when you die. Read what Reuters says here:
