But this is the Twitter era. All it takes is one twit with a Twitter account to fabricate an 'insider report' and it gets legs. Gone are the days when lying would have permanent impact on a journalist's credibility. Twitterers aren't journalists, have no credibility, and people still circulate their fantasies as though they were facts.

You can't stop the spread of info (be it accurate or false) in 2012. Info (be it accurate or false) will spread. Your best bet is to make sure the info that does spread is accurate, and secrecy and silence doesn't do that.
