This is kind of weird...

This is how rumors get started

Terry Bradshaw now knows what Mark Twain meant when he said "reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

Rumors that Bradshaw, a Shreveport native, had died of a heart attack swept through the area Thursday.

They were wrong. KTBS talked to a friend of Bradshaw's family Thursday afternoon. He said Bradshaw was on vacation in Mexico and has talked to his parents in Shreveport and told them he is OK.

Bradshaw won four Super Bowls in a Hall of Fame career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's now a pro football analyst for Fox Sports.

One theory as to how the rumor got started was that a local radio station reported a wreck on the Terry Bradshaw Passway -- part of the Inner Loop and that was misunderstood to say Bradshaw had passed
away.

You know I was thinking that maybe we should have a forum called "rumor mill" that is made up only of rumors and each month we should evaluate them and see which ones really had some truth to it. I think that would be interesting, we could actually track these rumor mills.

They are still, as recently as today on the Tomlin/Grimm story. I did not post it because I know you prefer it not be here. I did post it on my site though.

Whatever happened to checking your facts before reporting it to the public? :dunno: Everyone is so quick to be the first to break a story that they don't even check anymore :smh:

If I were a reporter, in this day and age, I would rather be a consistent second, who has their story straight than one who "breaks a story" irresponsibly.

In other news, James Brown is not really dead, he just had a sex change, and is Jamie Brown "Duchess of Soul" now.

I heard that too, but I thought the salt water conflicted with his ebola, which sped up it's infection causing him to bleed faster than expected.. hence the shooting before his death.

Sheesh, get yer damn facts right!
