Why is it the media can report what ever they think will sell? It is just wrong. Imagine if a sports reporter was to announce 5 minutes before the game is over that the San Francisco 49rs won the Superbowl people would have a fit but what the media is doing is no different than doing that

This is called morals (sometimes common sense) which had been significantly weakened during my lifetime of observing human behavior. It's no longer taught apparently.We used to demand/expect higher standards of everyone and poor behavior (say, 'shacking up' or having a kid before the ring) resulted in shunning, not worldwide exploitation and glorification. We used to have an emotion called shame. Apparently, we don't now.What the PIO says is ALL that is known (publicly). Anything else is (dangerous) assumption and conjecture.I have a good use for the media: let them cover the return of the pillory. Of course they'd also BE part of that story. ;-)Walter, come back, we need you. ;-)RickTiny iPhone 5 keypad, typos are inevitable

Most of what the PIO says at the press conferences is (justifiably) "I can't answer that." So I think it's no wonder that the media goes with whatever they can find from the rumor mill. They don't have any real info, from either authorized or not authorized sources. As Mark says, they are payed to get ratings.
