For the past several weeks there has been a pretty much constant stream of Beatles "news" items posted by various news outlets including the BBC, CBS, NBC, CNN and that beacon of journalistic integrity, Yahoo News. This week, several of these organizations have reported such revelatory stories as "Paul McCartney says John Lennon instigated the Beatles breakup", "The Paul McCartney song the Beatles despised" and "The Beatles gave a song to the Rolling Stones". I'm pretty sure that all of these and several other earth shattering Beatles newsflashes making the rounds lately a have been previously reported ad nauseam. I know there is a lot of new Beatles-related product to promote, but it seems pretty silly to me. What's the deal?
