    Gotcha. Big Wave, your best bet would be to pm a mod, they can help you with any issues you have.

      if Hal uses a story from one of those sources as his main argument and it is posted on RR, it will likely be removed if there is no other sources available. WND has become a tabloid.

      if you find a post or thread questionable, please report it and we will address it.

          Debka has made some false claims before, even to point of crying wolf. WND has promoted some rather odd "christian" beliefs in some of their articles and op-eds.

            I'm so happy the moderators are doing such a great job trying too keep the tabloid stuff off this board. I don't want to read something that isn't all truth, and turn around and pass the info. to a friend or a church member. It could get rather embarassing if it were to happen often. People would really think I'm all doom and gloom. and flipped my lid! Thanks again Mods.

                Not just as of late. HL has quoted Debka going back quite some time. He doesn't even bother to check their lack of veracity, nor sensationalism, nor speculation....at least he hasn't over the last few years.

                  I respect the work of Ken Timmerman whose work appears in Newsmax and other publications. He is a thorough investigative reporter.

                      no doubt Newsmax has good commentary, but not everything therein can be taken credibly. best to not use it as a primary source when reporting news is all.

                        I couldn't agree more!

                        Just this morning I was reading something on another Christian website that deals with end time events and prophesy. A sight I had respected.

                        It had several articles from EU Times which I found disturbing and unbelievable, which now leaves me questioning the veracity and credibility of the site and it's operators. It was a major disappointment.

                        Reporting sensationalist pap as news and truth makes us appear to be gullible fools.

                        Thank you Mod's!

                          Thanx for the info...good to know in case I get an email from someone with an article from one of those sites. I have friends and relatives who send links to stuff from questionable sources.

                          Also, I agree this should be stickied.

                            Sure you can read the L.A Times if you want "truth"

                                We had this problem at RF as well; too many people were taking the reports at face value without corroborating the news reports. WND, NewsMax And DebkaFile tend to spread FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doom).

                                Something for everyone out there in RR to keep in mind: if you find a news story, ALWAYS Google the headline. You will find that in many cases, the story is "parroted" from another source. In the case of FUD, it comes via a series of different sources which can usually be backtracked to conspiracy nuts who play who like to feed garbage out to the masses to get them going. Genuine news stories are usually on major sites and have corroboration.

                                As for Prisonplanet and Infowars, those sites are Alex Jones' sites. This guy is NOTORIOUS for spreading FUD all over the place, and tries to "substantiate" his stories with flimsy stuff. You're better off avoiding his sites altogether; you are NOT going to get the truth from there.

                                Here is a list of names of people you are better off avoiding:

                                Michael Salla

                                Sorcha Faal

                                Alex Jones

                                David Icke

                                Lindsay Williams

                                David Wilkerson

                                David Rense

                                Texe Marrs

                                Hal Turner

                                Last Trumpet Ministries

                                Steve Quayle

                                Vincent Xavier

                                If you track a story back to its' source, and see these names in connection to them, chances are it's garbage.
