The long goodbye
Posted July 14th, 2009 by debritz
I was surprised to see that the fourth most popular entertainment story on news.com.au today concerns film star Patrick Swayze saying goodbye to his family "as his cancer spreads". The story is dated November 28, 2008 - more than seven months ago - and, as far as I know, Swayze is still with us. I hope he lives to see the story get older and older and older. But why is it that this item remains in the top 10? Presumably, Google keeps delivering readers who think it is current news.
