Breaking news:
Dennis Hopper dead at 74

Publication: Associated Press
Date: 29 May 2010

In two days, the number of correct predictions for the year jumps from zero to two for the tabloids foretelling the deaths of celebrities as Dennis Hopper dies from complications of prostate cancer. He was 74.

The Enquirer first had Hopper's health problems on their website in January and the Examiner put him on the front page that same month. His health problems were also covered in the legitimate press as well.

Best wishes to all Mr. Hopper's friends and to most of his family, from a fan.

Jeebus Matty Boy anyone could have predicted this one. He was a very sickly person suffering from Prostate cancer and given six months to live back a year ago.

Yeah, this was in the tabloids and the legitimate press as well. Still, they put the story on the cover and that's all it takes to be a legitimate hit, no matter how "obvious".
