Guys, you have to verify such stories before you post them. If it's only one site, what is that? A story like this? On one site only?

"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

It took me less than 90 seconds to sniff this out. You guys have to develop these skills. You have to become skeptical in the face of such announcements.

Whether or not you post links to news items, you, for your own sake, have to become skeptical in the face of sudden announcements such as this. If it's on one site only, what is it? It's bait, to make you click on some fake shit site, and spread it to others, so that they will click on some fake shit site. Don't help these people with their deceptions.

I'm glad to have the opportunity to once again reinforce this to you guys. Since I know that you will be much more careful in the future, 6guns, don't sweat it.

For someone like Clint Eastwood, all one would have to do is take a peek at IMDB real quick.

It's not even a particularly interesting death either. Guy is like 89 years old, if he dies, that's just what 89 year olds do. They don't even need a reason. Such lazy spoof "news".

The death of Mister Eastwood has everything a story wants: We have a universally known movie icon. Not only is he an icon with universal name recognition, he's known for playing powerful characters, so that his death is not a fading of frailness, but the fall of a lion. In addition to this, Eastwood has espoused Conservative views, sometimes in dramatic fashion (the empty chair), which makes him politically controversial. This story has it all. Click bait heaven.

reminds me of the time the so-called legitimate news agencies accidentally released the news of Reagan's death, years before he died.

anyone remember that? They said they were testing how they were going to handle his death, news-wise and someone hit the 'send' button.

Of course, Para is right, these days it's about click bait, and I heard the Clinton Pizza-gate fake news of last fall made the author over $10k. there's big money to be had in fake news.

No, not 'basically', not 'kinda'; click bait, definitively. Ten ways from Sunday. Pure fabrication from con men.
