Fans of radio personality Howard Stern strike again, this time pranking MSNBC anchor Krystal Ball during their coverage of the shooting down of a Malaysian Airlines 777 over Ukraine.

But it also exposes the sloppiness that happens in the battle between the 24 hour news operations to be first, at the risk of being wrong.
