Comment: We rely on secondary sources

We rely on secondary sources

We only know what we were told by people we do not know and about events even they did not witness. Their information comes from sources that are of unknown reliability, such as public affairs officers or other similar press representatives. Along the way, the story becomes a farce of misinformation, disinformation, and fantasy.

Dorner's wallet was found twice. The second time, it was found, intact, next to a body burned so badly that they had to do tests on it to determine who it was. Yet the wallet survived that same fire?

Possible. But not probable.

The truth is hard to wring out of the dribs and drabs of conflicting info.
