    My take, the media has become very untrustworthy. They don’t research it’s just who can be the first to publish. Right or wrong. For the most part it’s wrong. The editors by and large don’t exist for truth but to publish first. It sad thus we have to pay to get researched articles. Now wasn’t that a nice way to say Fake News

    Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander, which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie.

    So if the story, is false, then how did BB/BW get so many sources with such an elaborate and detailed story?

    In 2003 the White House (Dick Cheney) created aluminum tubes, WMD! to argue for the invasion of Iraq. Today, the WH is committed to stopping China from stealing our IP.

    Could some group be planting misinformation again? Maybe.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The sad part is we have entered a time where accusations are as powerful as convictions and this is a sad state of American Journalism. Like many powerful claims in the news, this one may (or may) be true. But, as Robert indicated above, the loss of true editors, fact checkers and traditional funding have pushed news agencies to publish first and determine the validity of the claims second. Add to this the voracity of the public to simply “consume” whatever comes there way and you have a recipe for disaster in news.
