Whoops! No, Robert Durst Is NOT The 'Former Limp Bizkit Frontman'
The Associated Press was forced to issue quite a correction after mixing up their Dursts. The esteemed wire service referred to the aging real estate heir who was charged with murder yesterday as the "former Limp Bizkit frontman."
Here's the original report that mixed up Robert Durst and Fred Durst that went out via Romenesko:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst has been booked on weapons charges in that state - on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by Los Angeles authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that an 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.
AP spokesman Paul Colford told Romenesko that the Robert/Fred mix-up was in “a brief that appeared solely on the California broadcast wire last night." And here is the correction:
"In the second item of the California 10th NewsMinute sent March 16 to users of the state broadcast wire, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Robert Durst is a member of a band. He is a real estate heir; Fred Durst is the former frontman of Limp Bizkit."
That's not quite right exactly either. Limp Bizkit is still touring, Fred is still their frontman and their most recent single was titled Endless Slaughter.
