    It might be good if there was a forum here specifically for discussing unsubstantiated rumors -- to aid in either proving or disproving them -- whose contents couldn't be recommended.

      A political SNOPES or the like would be great.

      Just make sure you know which side they are fighting on.

        That would be really, really great, actually. And especially with a lot of left-leaning urban rumors that have worked out wrong.

        The more that we're on the side of provable fact, the better. That's our greatest weapon. It's how we're kicking the crap out of the GOP in the polls right now, even.

          It's kind of like the old marketing saw - do something right and ten people hear about it.  Do something wrong, and 100 people hear about it.  Same goes for mis-reported info, leftist urban legends, etc.  Except for us it is probably more like 1:100.

          I'm still waiting for follow-up on the Nazi concentration camp story from a couple of months ago, hoping against hope that the planned reunion took place and that there is evidence of it some place...
