When they reported that Robert Durst was the frontman of Limp Bizkit, the Associated Press kind of blew it this weekend. Here is the first release:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst continues to be arrested on weapons charges because state – on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by La authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that the arrest warrant was issued for the former Limp Bizkit frontman and he was rebooked in the Orleans Parish Jail on Monday under two new charges.
Afterwards, a web site called jimromenesko.com saw the error and allow the dummies in the AP understand about their error. A correction was subsequently issued saying:
(AP)The Associated Press reported erroneously that Robert Durst is an associate of a group. He’s a property heir; Fred Durst is the former frontman of Limp Bizkit.
A spokesman, Paul Colford, afterwards addressed the problem and said the thing was “a brief that appeared only about the California program cable.”
There was some great news for Fred Durst … said his name.
