This is what society has become. Anyone on a forum can make a claim and it’s news.

I'd wait until that date comes and goes before calling someone a "liar.

Notice the name(s) of the sources? Notice the high level position(s)? Notice it's not in a press release, or a news conference? Therefore, mostly BS. But hey! we gotta guy claiming first, $169K, then interior and now? Detroit. Free speech, free mind to differentiate betw. what is said/written and what is real. Today it's called fake news. There's always been a lot of it, hasn't there?

I blame the idiot trolls at Jalopcrap. They survive from clickbait.

Well, if there was going to be a surprise reveal of any car... of course GM would deny it. That’s how surprises work.

Not it saying I believe the latest zerv02 claim or not. Just saying this “yet another car blogs” attempt at saying it’s a lie is pretty weak.

^^^ Not really scary, at least to me. As I wrote before, :"Free speech, free mind to differentiate betw. what is said/written, and what is real."

Now, if someone has difficulty determining fiction from truth, then that's a problem. But, without mostly free speech in this society, would you want to be living here, or wherever? I doubt it.

I have to agree with the above. I don't have any real difficulty differentiating between credible sources and not. If it's not a known publication outlet with a long track record of accuracy, I don't take what I read at face value. And even the credible sources make mistakes, but it's generally easy to find corroboration if a story is accurate.
