Unreliable Sources

The dictionary definition is knowledge communicated or received concerning a particular fact or circumstance; news. We have many ways of obtaining information, such as the news, the internet, word of mouth, and even classrooms and teachers.
So how is it that even with all of the ways that we have to obtain information, we always have false information?
There is always some false rumor, some stupid lie that floats around that everyone believes. Rumors that someone is cheating on their girlfriend. Rumors that someone will be fired from their job. Rumors that a girl is a slut.
Lies that drive friends apart, ruin peoples lives, and end loving relationships.
The source of these, in my opinion, is the stupidity of most human beings. We believe everything we hear. We never think before we speak. And most of all, our inability to keep our mouth shut about things that aren't our business. Allot of times we start these rumors without knowing what we have done. Most of all, we ruin peoples lives.
Without ever giving it a second thought.
