Always surprises me how people can assign all sorts of motives and character flaws to someone based on second- and third-hand accounts. Isn't that the dishonesty every right-thinking person is already railing against? This is exactly what VanderSloot is so adamant about fighting. Articles that don't get the facts right and make liberal use of assumption and hearsay--already damaging a reputation even if they don't get corrected quickly—later get quoted as solid fact by other reporters and bloggers, simply because they already exist. The further down the road we get, the more work it is to refute those "known facts."
