    Have any one in the media check out to verify what the last commentator Bunn has said.
    I belive the media owes it as a duty and a civic responsibilty towards verification in its method of reporting in avoidence of heresay and mischievous banter specfically giving a high regard for truth and facts
    Letting an unknown source mislead or falsify information without verification to issues that are of matter to the public is totally irresponsible and the media ought to be told
