22. That risk has always existed, too.

Heck, the news organizations are just as bad as the internet warriors, and they have been for a very long time, reporting every little rumor they catch wind of by saying "We've received a report that ... " People hear that and take what follows as gospel. I tend not to believe any story until it hasn't changed for at least 24-48 hours, whether on the internet or on the news. The good thing about the internet is that such errors tend to get corrected much more quickly.
