I would suggest you confirm a source before reporting it blindly. Making “blind” statements without thorough reference or source may be misleading.
Yes I agree. We can’t spend the next few weeks/months mindlessly discussing every piece of information. Some sources are much better than others too. As Chipmunk1973 said, lets look for multiple sources quoting similar stories before posting on here rather than simply being first or having a ‘scoop’ or ‘breaking news’. The best journalists will check and double check even it means being later than the rest. It will raise the quality of conversation on here concerning VA if we can stay calm.
Thats not what Chipmunk1973 said and there is nothing in the rules to say that things can be only posted if there are multiple sources. As long as newsworthy items are credited properly including providing a link to the news article it should be posted. We can also discuss every piece of information, after all its a discussion forum
