The world would be a much scarier place if "unnamed sources" actually told the truth much of the time. They generally tell of impending death and destruction. The latest viral news based on these unnamed sources is that Hugo Chávez is suffering from kidney failure. He later called state television to say it was false. If unnamed sources are right, then Fidel Castro has died about 20 times, there are Middle Eastern terrorists swarming the U.S.-Mexico border speaking bad Spanish, and the Bolivian navy is getting Iranian assistance to invade Chile (well, I made that one up, by which I mean I spoke to an unnamed source).
