But really, in a way, aren't we all guilty of being in Limp Bizkit.
I had heard nothing of these murders, nor this HBO special, until this news broke. Now I feel like someone came up to me and said (as someone once did) "Bruce Willis is dead" before I had ever even heard of the film in the first place.
Years ago, when I was a national editor for a major news organization, Kurt Cobain killed himself and I was the only person on the desk who knew who Kurt Cobain was. So the generation gap on news desks is not, you know, news. However, I can't see even the unhippest editor gratuitously adding a reference to Limp Bizkit (and spelling it correctly, no less). To me, this seems more like someone fooling around, making a joke that he expected to be stripped out before the story went on the wire, and then being severely embarrassed when it was not.
Similarly, Jen has often told the story of being at the Inq the Saturday night of Princess Diana's car crash and having to instruct the editors that, actually, this was kind of a big deal and they needed to stop the m.f. presses. http://articles.philly.com/1997-08-31/news/25568336_1_diana-and-fayed-paris-tunnel-paris-car-crash
