MJ Dies, Internet FAIL

At around 2:40 p.m. today, Google News was inaccessible to many users. As other sites also went down, users went to other sites. TechCrunch reported that TMZ, which broke the story, had several outages; users then switched to Perez Hilton’s blog, which also struggled to deal with the requests it received. CNN reported a fivefold rise in traffic and visitors in just over an hour, receiving 20 million page views in the hour the story broke.
