CNN’s Jake Tapper wasn’t the only one mourning the death of the “Carol Burnett Show” and “Blazing Saddles” actor, who died (for the first time) in 2008.

Tapper corrected his error and deleted the “RIP Harvey Korman” tweet.

But the Twitterverse couldn’t resist poking a little fun at the “red faced” Tapper.

Indeed. And RIP Bob Denver.

    It’s not hard. If you see something on Twitter, quickly check it out BEFORE reTweeting. Duh.

      Really. You gotta be snotty and condescending. Shame on you, unless you’re perfekt.

      • Good God

        Anyone who can’t take the time to Google and just automatically dispenses false news deserves all the snottiness and condescension they receive.

    I missed that also. It wasn’t just going around on Twitter, people were posting it on Facebook. I guess it is not just because he is gone, many were talking about the filth on Television, and the New Comedians who are nothing but filthy thinking they are funny. Jake your not the Only one, and it is okay.

    Apparently you can’t wish someone to Rest in Peace on the anniversary of their death, it can only on the few days after they die. If he died in October 2008 and not 5 years and just a few days ago on May 29, 2008 then one can mock the wrong timing.

    So much for “News” people checking their sources, eh?? Journalism 101, folks.

    The Gipper was ahead of the tech revolution, for his timeless advice about the Soviet Union applies equally to Twitter: Trust, but verify.

    It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated last night while enjoying a play at the Ford Theatre.
    What do you guys mean that happened a long time ago?

  • GaryTheBrave

    Bob Denver is dead? ! I’m sure his brother, John, is in mourning.

    Harvey “That’s Hedley!” Korman … 5 years after your death and you’re still making us laugh! Missing your humor more now than the first time you died. May you continue to R.I.P.

  • marxskeptic

    When will CNN announce Liberty dead?

    • TocksNedlog

      MSNBC beat them to the punch on that one.

      Although, in their case, it was less of an announcement and more of a ‘pronouncement’.

      Followed by a fiesta.

      What’s this you say about Ella Fitzgerald? Werner Herzog just made a movie about her starring Nastassja Kinski.

    Also Edith Bunker…aka Jean Stapleton. Looking forward to All in Family re-runs. And, yes, I know the show might be considered anti-conservative but does not take away from her talent. RIP Jean What great performers these all were. Korman, whenever he expired, used to have me laughing aloud, something that rarely happens when I watch these days.

  • Steve_J

    Talking about Harvey Korman got me to thinking of the Carol Burnet Show. Here’s a clip from the show and a Mama’s Family clip with Tim Conway talking about elephants. http://bit.ly/119OnUj

      LOL, don’t even have to watch it! That is one of the funniest bits ever to appear on TV. “Siamese elephants, joined at the trunk.”

      • Grandma HeadInjury

        Classic! My wife still goes into giggle fits at the mere mention…

    Harvey Korman’s face reminds me of this Big Important Dem from New York, who is part of Rubio’s infamous Gang of 8, can’t think of his name, but he always looks sneaky. This Big Important Dem was also Weiner’s Career guide before all the texting troubles befell Weiner.

  • Maxx

    I can just imagine Korman trying to get through reading this “from above” without laughing. Good lord, it didn’t matter how stone faced I was during a CB show…when those clowns began cracking up during a skit, trying to get through the lines without things falling entirely off the tracks, I and perhaps millions more followed right along with them.

    I miss that kind of unscripted comedy.

      One of the specials they did a few years ago, after Harvey had died, Carol said the question never was IF Harvey was going to lose it, but WHEN!

    Honestly, I sympathize with Jake Tapper. I didn’t even know Harvey Korman was dead.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    same day every year Tim Conway visits Harvey Korman’s grave, talks to him in the Mr. Tudball voice, listens to the giggling coming out of the grave.

    Is Francisco Franco still dead?
