Every hour of every day has to be filled with new content because the average reader has the attention span of a three-year-old. Case in point:
This is from Yahoo News:
“A 34-year-old Louisiana teacher is accused of raping her 10-year-old male student.”
But is it true? It may be, but so far the incident has just been alleged, and not been verified. But what if isn’t true. Her mugshot has already been all over the internet. If the allegation is false, where does she go to get her reputation back? The internet is replete with false allegations which have ruined lives, mainly due to the alleged perpetrator being tried and convicted in the court of public opinion.
