Yeah, I never really saw this reported as "news" anywhere (not that it wasn't eventually picked up on several blog sites). This was more of a discussion board/twitter "investigation." I never really gave it much credibility, but when all the MSM sites start yelling "fake news" in unison, it does peak my curiosity. It's not like pedophile scandals are that rare among people in power.
It might be inaccurate news, but I have no doubt that the people looking into this believe its real.
