"Me, just trying to find out how old Ivana Trump was, and seeing a giant DO NOT PUB in a headline (which naturally made me want to read the article even more)," another added.

A number of reporters noted that outlets will often pre-write obituaries for notable people who are older or who are struggling with illness.
"Oof, someone forgot to remove 'DO NOT PUB' note on the Ivana Trump obit ABC News published. For those unaware, publications oftentimes have pre-written obits ready for notable people to where they can add in the date and any new info when the person actually dies," wrote Toledo News photojournalist Kurt Steiss.
