How Does CBS Know?

Terri Schiavo is still alive, but CBS has already written her obituary. That is not unusual when a newsworthy person is known to be near death. Writing the obit in advance gives the news organization a better chance to be the first to put the story out.

According to the Glen Beck radio show, CBS accidentaly posted Terri's obit on its web site last night, and the obit includes a line that Michael Schiavo was at Terri's side when she died. Since Terri has not died yet, how does CBS know who will be at her side when she dies? CBS's bias and fact-checking problem is showing again.
