CBS Sports fires the blogger behind a major error: He reported Joe Paterno died based on a single tweet that was only linked, not sourced. (He wasn't dead at the time, though he died about 12 hours later.)

We're a big supporter of the popular third-party Tumblr extension "Missing e," a popular browser extension put together by +Jeremy Cutler to greatly improve the Tumblr interface. Tumblr, however, doesn't agree, and has made many efforts in the past six months to stifle its development, which has thus far been unsuccessful. Today, they pulled a dramatic move: They put a giant dialog box on users' profiles in an attempt to get them to uninstall the open-source plugin. Drew Olanoff of TNW sees right through it.

"Third-party extensions and hacks are a part of the web, perhaps Tumblr should focus on building new features or its own official 'app store' instead of whining about support and server issues." +Drew Olanoff nails it.___We're a big supporter of the popular third-party Tumblr extension "Missing e," a popular browser extension put together by +Jeremy Cutler to greatly improve the Tumblr interface.

This week, you might've heard about the death of Ben Breedlove, a YouTube personality with a heart condition who nearly died three times before — twice in 2011. What was even more captivating about Breedlove's death is the way he openly discussed it in two videos he made a week before his death (http://j.mp/vzaPRS) — using note cards, but remaining silent.

He openly credited another teenager named Kieran Miles for the idea. His video, in case you haven't seen it, is a tear-jerker, too. But in much the same way as Breedlove's, it's extremely uplifting. Worth a watch.

Check out our take on the whole +TIME controversy, regarding their U.S. cover play.

Yesterday, Glenn Greenwald (among others) loudly scorned Time Magazine for playing a soft story on its U.S. edition, while giving the growing protests in Egypt big play on the international editions of the magazine. But is that really a fair criticism — to look at a single issue and made the judgment that Time whitewashes its U.S. editions?
