Help me debunk this email -- Women in burkas buying up cell phones.....
My RW cousin keeps sending me these horrible, propaganda emails. The latest is one about terrorism activity in Fresno that I found debunked at Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/burqacell.asp Snopes says it is false but the article they link to at the Fresno Bee as evidence is no longer current. I couldn't find it in their archives. I need something more than just Snopes word for it. Does anyone here have any additional links for this debunking this email or know where I can find the article at the Fresno Bee?

1. I hope you do a
Reply All if RW cousin is including you in a mass emailing. I find that rather quickly gets people to stop sending such things.

Last time I got one of those and did the Reply All, I got messages from several of the others on the list thanking me for what I'd done, saying that person was constantly sending out such crap.

2. I tried that but she is doing something like a blind cc
I never see any other names on the email, although I'm sure she's sending them out to everyone.
