    I'm glad people take the time to check out these stories, especially from young adults/kids.

    I was watching the movie Shattered Glass the other day, about the reporter Stephen Glass who fabricated pretty much every story he ever wrote at the New Republic, and it was pretty illuminating as to how easy it seemingly is to simply make up news. At least in this case the reporter was tricked and not lying, but even so.
