A day after Vox.com ran a story saying David Chase told someone Tony Soprano never died in that last episode, Chase is now saying it isn't true. When a journalist asked him point blank if Tony Soprano is dead, the article claimed he answered, "No. No, he isn't."

Now Chase is saying his comments were "misconstrued." Notice he's not saying he was 'misquoted', only 'misconstrued'. Is Tony dead? No. No, he isn't. That doesn't leave any wiggle room. Yet here's his statement released through his publicist Leslee Dart:

A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying," Tony Soprano is not dead," is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true.
As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, "Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point." To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.

Yeah, I call bull#&*% on this.
