‘Clicks first, facts later’: Vox’s cred gets whacked after ‘Sopranos’ scoop
Earlier today, Vox caused quite a stir with this story:
According to Voxsplainer Martha P. Nochimson, “The Sopranos” creator David Chase revealed that Tony Soprano didn’t die at the end of the series finale.
Yeah … about that:
More from Today:
The Vox report seemed clear-cut enough — until late Wednesday when Chase’s representative Leslee Dart issued this statement:
“A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, ‘Tony Soprano is not dead,’ is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true.
“As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, ‘Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.’ To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of ‘The Sopranos’ raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.”
Oh, Vox … will you ever learn?
How on earth could this have happened?
Looks like we’re back to square one!
