    This may not be true. No other news service has carried the story, and I also found this

    I've checked Fox news, CBS News, ABC News, MSNBC and even BBC news. Nothing anywhere. Any one else find anything?

    Okay, I looked, and that was from last weekend. Apparently there were rumors flying last weekend. This story is from today. So I'm thinking it may be true. :(

    ABCs NY station reported it. It's what prompted me to search online for a story.

    Found this via Google News.

    EDIT: These two are probably more reliable sources.

    It's the lead story on CNN's homepage. Sad. Thanks to everyone for using such due dillegence in reporting this story here on Macrumors. I appreciate the truth...

    RIP Bernie Mac

    RIP Bernie Mac. I always enjoyed him in movies. I am thinking that Bad Santa= Bad Luck. First John Ritter and now Bernie Mac.

    NY Times is now reporting he died of complications from pneumonia. What a shame.
