Facts don't get in the way of Web political rumors

Nov 1, 2008 Full story: The Associated Press

With just days to go before the election, gossip, hearsay, innuendo and smears are flying through the Internet as gadflies and rumormongers hope to sway voters before they head to the polls.

'It's a lot of mud being slung, it's understandable, but I think it's still kind of sad,' said Nick DiFonzo, a psychologist and rumor expert at Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York.

Candidates and their campaigns are circulating negative bits of information in mainstream venues, raising questions about their opponents in speeches and dropping sour hints in their advertisements. But only on the Internet can entirely false rumors persist, stories told without back up, persistently bouncing from one blog to another.

1. Stole the 2000 election.

3. Lied to the American people about the weapons of mass destruction.
4. Responsible for starting an illegal war.
5. Went after the wrong enemy responsible for 9/11 attack.
6. Didnít abide by the Geneva and Hague Conventions.

Cleary they had a different agenda for Iraq.(A US present in an oil country).

9. Responsible, for 750,000+ jobs leaving America.
10. Responsible for the broken bank system.
