In a series of tweets, Adam Jacobi says CBS let him go after he published a story Saturday night saying that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had died. Jacobi tweets:

CBS was not the only news site to falsely report Paterno's death. But it was the first major news site to pick up the erroneous report from Onward State. CBS was criticized, in particular, for not sourcing the original death report but naming the student publication as the source of its error once the mistake was clear. Paterno died Sunday.
