As of Friday, Oct 3 at 1:54am, the Voice of America Web entertainment page still has two lead-ins to Clooney wedding stories, including one that is STILL reporting that that Clooney is “set to renounce” his bachelorhood oath, and marry…etc.

It’s a Reuters story that VOA originally published Friday, Sept 26 at 6:14pm.

Are they going for a solid week? Is this some kind of contest for how long VOA can keep up an out-of-date headline on an obsolete story? (Or maybe it’s a super-subtle way for VOA news managers to thumb their noses at those who expect them to monitor their own web site.)
