Tween and teen boys and girls around the world may have gone into panic if they stumbled on either Yahoo! news or Wikipedia on Friday and learned that their beloved Hannah Montana, aka 15-year-old actress and singer Miley Cyrus, had died in a horrible car accident in Los Angeles. The report was a hoax that sent shockwave ripples through the internet, but was easily confirmed as false. MyFox Los Angeles knows it just couldn't be true because, well, they are The Media: "We would have heard about the story if it were true, especially since it was reported to have happened here in Los Angeles," the explain in an article posted today on their site. They also direct us towards the "old" version of the Wikipedia page that listed Cyrus' death. Only, well, another way to know it couldn't be true--look at the given date of death. Hopefully Wiki isn't in the prediction business.
