Millions of readers around the country opened their Sunday papers to find a cover story interview with Benazir Bhutto in Parade magazine. The story did not mention that the Pakistani politician was assassinated Dec. 27.

Parade shipped out the edition before Bhutto was killed, and did not update it or send out an insert to reflect her death. Andrea Seabrook finds out why from Parade's publisher and hears from the Chicago Tribune's public editor about the dilemma the Parade story posed for his paper.
