Re: The media story that wasn't. What has become of the news?
I didn't hear of it either. The 24 hour news cycle means there's more news, but with less research and fact verification.
The scary part is that people can be falsely impugned and retractions for false stores are usually buried and only a minority read them. So the mud sticks. I've read about people being abused on the street for things they didn't do.
