    Why do people are so quick to believe fake news on one hand - but not real news on the other hand?

    It's amazing that there are people who DON'T believe that the tape recording of Mel Gibson - yet are so readily able to believe about the fake Al-Queda magazine when one of the authors has been in Gitmo for 5 years?!?

    Evil's best defense is man's denial of its existence.

    Disappointing hubbers!

    So Mel Gibson is you fantasy hero  and pooh pooh the recording of a raging lunatic who has done this before with the DUI police stop? Fake recording? Spliced to discredit him?  So - the truth truly comes out. Abusive males are excused by society - and blame the victim for "discrediting' him.

    It would seem that your assertions are true and well put, but there is a vast segment of many societies that do not adhere to the abusive and derogatory ranting of Mel Gibson. Gibson is a celebrity, and much of the disappointing dispatching of his actions are merely a produce of his fans buying into the characters he portrays, and not the man.

    Quick news is always fabricated to what people want to believe or hear, and real news is usually a harsh reality that people don't want to think about.

    You know, when you have been fed with fake stuff (which is 99.9% of our media) for all your life, you begin to think everything is fake. And sometimes it is really hard to tell a usual lie from the truth, especially if the information is being changed and remade for several time. Still, the most people believe in TV-news and all that crap. For exapmle I cut it off.
