Political topics are very different because lots of it is opinion or emotion. Emotion clouds peoples sight, and opinion is, well, an opinion.
...and a lot is for entertainment purpose.  ;)

The recent Jersey tragedy comes to mind. Lot of wrong info/rumors to begin with. That has since been correct and we no longer see any rumors for the most part.
There's a huge difference between a news story and a private tragedy. What happened here is a private tragedy was turned into a public news story by over-zealous maggots who traffic in gossip and fear mongering, no matter who or what gets hurt in the process. The only reason anyone's "natural" curiosity was piqued was because they didn't show even an ounce of sensitivity in waiting to publicize.

I am not disagreeing with what you are saying. I am pointing out a possibility to stopping the rumors.

not talking about opinions, just the truth in reporting factual events
Right, but with anything political, that goes out the window, as those reporting (or their script writers) are pushing an emotion (and/or opinion) filled agenda, which overshadows the facts. 


...and a lot is for entertainment purpose.  ;)
Indeed. No shortage of reasons to push things these days.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Its bs. There was a vn going around that someone spoke to a head counselor of a camp and he said they won't be able to open... but its 100% uncertain at this point. Speak to agudah and romimu, they are very involved and are still fighting.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
