Funny Story about the Gullibility of the Media and Rumors

So some guy in clooneyisgod's office tells him that Saints and Brees are preparing to announce a 5 year deal for $115,000,000. In fairness, he heard it as an office rumor. We'll see.

LINK

Then some girl tweets the same rumor on twitter
quote:


Fleurty Girl ? @FleurtyGirl
quote:

Unconfirmed rumor, but good enough sources to share: Drew Brees signed 5 year, $115 million contract! Just made my day!!



Fletcher Mackel of WDSU-TV News retweets this chick's rumor last night around 5:30PM

LINK

Then, someone reports on the Saints board that Fletcher Mackel just tweeted the same rumor, possibly to add confirmation to said rumor.

LINK

Then the Canal Street Chronicles report that FleurtyGirl's tweet was based off a TD rumor.

LINK

So in summary, Fletcher Mackel reports via twitter that some girl on some message board read a rumor from a guy that heard in his office that Saints and Brees are preparing to announce a 5 year deal for $115,000,000.

This just goes to show you the power of Tigerdroppings and the gullibility of people in the media and the public in general.



I found this funny enough to post and share.

Have saints fans toned down the panic yet, or are they still all, "herp derp everyone's out to get us bc the whole world hates us" and stuff?

There really is no panic.

The initial shock of losing Sean Payton cause a little bit of a meltdown but that's about it.

The Saints have done a fantastic job in FA and look to make a legitimate run in 2012.

Don't even respond to him. He always has some negative shite to say about the Saints and their fans.

I think the best part is the rumor got big enough to all but confirm the rumor to be untrue.

quote:

Here is Gus Kattengell responding to someone asking if the rumors were true about a Brees deal:

Gus Kattengell @Gkatt_17 @jklorlando33 we've heard that for a couple weeks, but when sources are asked it's not confirmed. Trust me when it happens the web crash
