Matt Drudge has a headline claiming that a 20 year old McCain campaign workers was attacked and mutilated in Pittsburgh and a 'B' was carved into her forehead. No link is provided.
Matt Drudge continues to have the luxury of yelling fire in a crowded room for attention, and the media returns to the theater after each and every time.
I wish I could be a millionaire by fabricating urban legends.
Because Drudge was right twice in the past (he is, literally, the stopped clock that is right twice a day), the media will lavish him with attention in the hopes that his sensational claim is true again.
While this story has yet to picked up by the MSM, I write simply to urge caution in handling such potentially unsubstantiated rumors and warn that (should this horrible story be true) damage control will certainly be required.
