MILEY CYRUS is pregnant!

It is not as if we librarians need another reason to illustrate to students the pitfalls of the Internet, but what the heck, here is another one anyway!

It seems that someone altered an article from J14 magazine, changing the text to read that "Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus is pregnant. Needless to say, publicist and J14 deny the rumor. Before the denial however, the damage was done and the rumor was all over the Internet and Blogosphere. As I always point out to students, don't believe anything you see on the Web unless it is from a verifiable, reliable source.

Before passing on something contained in an email, is a great place to check to dispel the urban legend hoax.
