Apple If you're looking for a party, Wall Street probably isn't the place you're going to find one. And to make matters worse, there are apparently people out there who are wilfully trying to make the life of the people on Wall Street (and subsequently, the rest of the world) even harder. By making up fake stories. And publish them on CNN's Digg - iReport.com. Some individual had posted a fake report last Friday, claiming Steve Jobs had suffered from a heart attack and was rushed into the hospital. As a result, Apple's stock made a 10% nosedive.

Thom, I too vehemently disagree, but with you. Real journalists do not publish anything they have not confirmed with at least two independent sources, or anyway that's how it used to be.


You wish. Since the internet came along, journalism is mostly about cutting & pasting from other news sources. Just go to news.google.com and look at a few versions of some smaller story. The biggest difference is usually the journalist's name.
