George H. W. Bush is currently in intensive care due to a fever, according to his staff. The situation has unfortunately led to one publication jumping the gun..
German newsweekly Der Spiegel published an unfinished obituary for Bush on its German language website yesterday. The obituary, titled “The Better Bush”, called Bush a “a colorless politician” whose reputation was only improved by the unsuccessful time in office of his son.
The obituary was taken down within minutes but not before a number of Spiegel readers noticed. The magazine has apologized on its Twitter feed.
