19. yes, that's a lesson that seems to be fogotten: GO TO THE SOURCE
FOR THE TRUTH. Rumors, spin, and shoddy or deliberately misleading reports abound. We know it. And yet when an exciting rumor comes, off go too many of us.

It happened with the Edwards/Biden/Dean incident too. Edwards put out a statement on this ( ), but a lot of divisive damage has been done already. Many DU threads, and many people who still believe the false rumors.

For this Kerry story that Keith debunked, so many people are hoping that impeachment proceedings really will start, they are too willing to believe the rumor.
