someone manning the WTVJ twitter account prematurely tweeted Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose had an ACL knee injury. Then quickly retracted the tweet and later erased it. Well, nothing ever gets deleted from the internets so:
Report of Derrick Rose’s injury was premature, his status is unknown. @BreakingNews

Over an hour later though the Universe must have took pity because the Bulls announced that Rose really did have an ACL injury and would miss the remainder of the season.
Derrick Rose really did tear his ACL. @NBCMiami will now flip you all off.

either @nbcmiami scooped all the major networks / papers or someone just lucked into keeping their job … guessing it’s the latter

After the retraction Twitter users started a meme making fun of WTVJ / @NBCMiami
When you get your news from @NBCMiami, you can take it to the bank…which will tell you it’s bogus.
