Russell Brand was not denied entry to South Africa or banned from the country, Huffington Post

Credit: Huffington Post

Russell Brand was not allowed to board a flight from London to Johannesburg to perform as part of his stand up world tour "Messiah Complex" on Friday because of what has been described as "not having enough blank pages on his passport".

Because of a mixture of ignorance and false information that has been disseminated by, among others, Brand himself, The Huffington Post somehow managed to surmise he had flown to South Africa, landed and is now banned from entering the country.  All three are incorrect.  He never left London.

Maybe the Huffington Post should stick to rehashing other publications' stories or as they call it "aggregating".

Tiger Woods hit a golf ball from Europe to Asia today - "which are in two different places"

After copying and pasting the AP story of Tiger Woods driving a golf ball over the Bosphorus Bridge, which devides Asia and Europe, The New York Daily News thought it was necessary to tell us in the accompanying tweet that both continents are indeed in two different places.

Thanks for that New York Daily News I never would would have learned that otherwise.
