PASTE Magazine Posts Roo Lineup, Says “We Were Punked”
Minutes ago, PASTE Magazine posted this Bonnaroo Festival poster which appeared to list a very plausible lineup card for Roo’s 10th Anniversary. A few moments after that, PASTE Staffer Max Blau updated the post writing, “This is not the Bonnaroo 2011 lineup, we’ve been punked.”
This is less of a case of Asheton Kutcher debauchery and more of a prominent publication jumping the gun to be “the first” to get the scoop. But I can’t play the blame game for I would have done the same thing. Such is the problem with internet journalism. We’re rewarded for being the first to break a story and, realizing that corrections are only a few key strokes away, would rather be fast acting than accurate.
No worries PASTE, it happens, if nothing else, you’ve given the Rooniverse more rumors to discuss, and for that, we thank you.
