Sometimes I'll talk about a story that isn't in the main stream media (MSM) yet. They might seem crazy, off the wall, a bit conspiratorial, or even flat-out, grab your tin foil hat bonkers. But some of these stories need to be reported. During 2017, there have been more than a few times when last month's rumor was today's news.
Hence, the Rumor Mill tag. These come from all sides, all places, and all people, but have not been confirmed by traditional journalists.
If you see this tag, take the news with a grain of salt.
Coming soon: The Grain-of-Salt-ometer, to identify how much salt to take with each story.
