Don’t spread gossip

Published 12:00 am Sunday, January 23, 2011

If you are going to spread gossip in Vicksburg about a crime that happened in Jackson, then you need to get the full story and details, look up details on WAPT or the Clarion-Ledger. Don’t just get a juicy piece of gossip and report half of the story, and if people around Vicksburg are going to talk about an article in the post without knowing the full story shame on you.

Think about if this was your family going through a tough time, would you want everyone to read something in the paper and share it with friends as if it were the whole truth? You can’t always rely on things written by someone who doesn’t take the time to research the whole story.
