FBI Denies Seizing Money From David Copperfield
How do news agencies get things so wrong? Every media outlet reporting on the search warrants executed at David Copperfield's warehouse and the theater he performs in said that the feds had seized $2 million in cash from a safe at the warehouse.
The F.B.I. says it never happened. No currency was seized.
Since TalkLeft repeated the media report (and speculated as to why the feds might seize so much money from him) I'm giving equal space to the F.B.I.'s denial.
Apologies to David Copperfield, and shame on the Las Vegas television station (KLAS, a CNN affiliate)that first falsely reported the seizure. In their hurry to get a scoop, someone got very sloppy. As of this writing, they still haven't made the correction.
