I got a tipoff on some sneaky poison perfume today. It purported to be from DC’s police chief. Let me quote a small piece.
The government is afraid that this might be another terrorist act . They will not announce it in the news because they do not want to create panic or give the terrorists new ideas.
Send this Fwd: to all your friends and family members.
Diane J. Ford
Office of the Chief of Police
This sounds reasonable, right? We’re not going to announce it on the news, but please forward this to all your friends and family members.
It took around ten seconds of searching to confirm: HOAX.
I wrote to the person who sent it to me.
You have made a huge mistake and now as grown-up you have to undo it. You have posted a truly INCORRECT story which originated years ago. It is still untrue today.
I just got it sent to me and I thought I be safe and send it to others .
Instead she did just the opposite. Maybe this isn’t yelling “FIRE” in a crowded theater, but it’s on the same track. She showed no intention of undoing her damage.
I’m not that guy and I’m done reading your nasty comments .like the news people never made a mistake .
And with that she cut me off. A Facebook de-friend!
News people do make mistakes which are usually noted and corrected. However, news people don’t go on the air just because a rumor has appeared in their inbox.
I’m guessing she won’t be reading this.
