Reuters appears to have prematurely published George Soros's obituary:

The rest of the obituary details his life, politics, and philanthropy. The piece even details a Soros "defeat."

"While Soros' life has been marked by remarkable success in his far-flung endeavors, it has not been without defeat. His investment in France's Societe Generale following Jacques Chirac's aggressive program of privatization led to charges of insider trading, which he disputed, and eventual conviction and the payment of a small penalty," the piece reads.

"And he was a minority partner in a group that failed to acquire the Washington Nationals Major League baseball team.

"But these failings stand out in the life of this remarkably successful Hungarian-American financier, philanthropist and thinker, in contrast to his stubborn refusal to fail in virtually every other venture."
