It’s hard to know what to believe nowadays. There are many conflicting accounts and ulterior motives to take into consideration when reading a story online. Its not just a problem for the Internet either, even news broadcasts on TV seem to be reporting on what people WANT to hear.

That kind of uncertainty has caused a lot of people grief… and as a result, some absolutely insane conspiracy theories were born.
