My inclination, as an old-school, classically-trained journalist, is not to go with a story unless I have it hard
It's not good enough to say something based on rumors that were flying around. We'll have to wait for the old-fashioned way
My rule of thumb is that if I am interested or intrigued by something, others will be as well.
