Gotta laugh about it

When big news breaks, it’s always a struggle to try to put together the details. In the frenzy, someone’s bound to make a mistake. It happens.

The news that Manny Ramirez has been traded to the Dodgers is currently being picked up by media outlets around the world. The funniest breaking news tease seen thus far: CNBC’s “Breaking News” box that said the following:

SI: Manny Ramirez to Dodgers for Jon Heyman

Jon Heyman, of course, isn’t coming to the Red Sox. He is a reporter who reported the story soon after the trade happened.
