They can't post something on the internet unless it's true.
Where did you hear that?
Seriously, no website cares if what they print is true or not anymore, it's all about stirring the pot, saying anything to get people to READ your article whether they love it or hate it......they are reading it and that's what drives advertising, which in turn drives income. This is why I call Skip Bayless the biggest genius on TV, he says a ton of crap he doesn't remotely believe just to drive ratings, you either love the guy or hate the guy, there is no in-between.....he is ratings GOLD!!!! If you are not controversial, you are considered boring these days, it's quite sad.
Journalists in large have sold their souls and lost their integrity.
