Kinkade's Genocide

Thomas Kinkade ("Painter of Light") died on April 6, 2012. I am at a loss for how this "obituary" for Kinkade came to be at something called The Daily News (technology news, gadget news, etc.):

As word of Kinkade’s black genocide widespread Saturday, fans flocked to a small galleries to buy his work.
“It’s funny beautiful. We’re struggling with our own emotions, nonetheless the open is entrance in and usually shopping art off the wall,” pronounced Ester Wells, art studio executive at the Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery in Pismo Beach, Calif. “Right now, people are usually entrance in and shopping all in our inventory.”
Many business paid for art as a reverence whilst others pronounced it was a intelligent investment: they feel his work will right divided be value more down the road, Wells said. Others stopped by usually to contend how contemptible they were to listen to of his death.
“We’re starting to remove a great artist to the universe yet we’ll never dont consider about him,” Wells said, adding that she thinks Kinkade will be remembered as an additional Norman Rockwell
Kinkade regarded Rockwell as his beginning hero. His mother had a large pick up of copies of Saturday Evening Post magazines, he pronounced in a autobiography on his website.
“The scenes were sentimental and brought behind unequivocally happy memories for people,” pronounced Marty Brown, who owns 4 galleries in Southern California that sell Kinkade paintings. Brown’s galleries had already had a record sales day by noon on Saturday, he said.
The business ranged from extraordinary people who’d seen headlines of Kinkade’s genocide on the headlines to longtime collectors purchasing a integrate of more pieces.
“Some people are entrance and shopping a integrate or shopping their initial piece, or usually shopping something. But they all feel flattering bad, to discuss it you the truth,” he said.
Kinkade had a air blower base that was unprecedented, and he done collectors out of the many people who brought his art in to their homes. [more]

Ostensibly this was originally written in English, since the authors are cited as Associated Press writers in Phoenix, AZ and Chicago, IL. But was it then translated into, say, Japanese, and then re-translated back into English...by a non-native speaker? We may never know.
