When the average reader views the headline that Michael Jackson molested dozens of young boys, undoubtedly some will believe it. They will not question why the FBI didn't arrest Jackson with "thousands of pages" of evidence against him. They will not question that the files contain a private investigator's files, which could be factually incorrect. Nor will they even realize that said private investigator has been convicted of illegally obtained weapons, and 76 counts of an array of charges, ranging from illegal wiretapping to identity theft. They will not question the authenticity of a "document" that alleges that dozens of boys were molested, nor will they question the credibility of its source. They won't even question whether a disgruntled ex-employee (or five) would sell false stories to the tabloids simply to make a fast buck.
