Who says no one's expecting it? If the rumor mill around here is any indication, then the top brass of our own government seems to feel as though
something is being cooked up. Does this make it true? No, but it does make it a bit more tangible to believe.
With that said, I need to make a point that I feel is very pertinent here. When it comes to reporting news, there's one thing that we all ask for,
and that's a solid source. Some sources aren't as legitimate as others, and then yet others are completely devoid of any credibility at all. SUN,
and any other "tabloid" magazine publishers are what we would consider "non-authoritative" media, because they offer no evidence other than
hearsay for the things that they claim. They make outlandish claims with no supporting evidence, and make huge leaps on said claims, to form a story
that's completely devoid of any truth, aside from the little nugget that they started with. Another one is wikipedia. We don't usually reference
them because they can be edited by anyone, whether they have information pertaining to the subject or not. I could go to any wiki site, and add
in profanities anywhere that I like, and it could potentially ruin the site. My point here is that sources like this are terrible for credibility.
Please consider these things when you view stuff that you might consider putting up here at ATS for us to peruse. We're kind of harsh sometimes with
those stories that seem to be ridiculous. This one isn't ridiculous at all; it's merely not supported with anything real. I think that what we
really need is some solid evidence that what SUN says is going on is true. Maybe then we can listen to them for once, without laughing.
