authenticity on the internet

Following the recent deaths of Jeff Goldblum and George Clooney* the internet has become the new obits pages for the worlds media...

*ok so these were rumours started on the internet that within hours had circumnavigated the globe. Friends of the stars contacted agents to check what had happened and to send their condolences. The question is a age old one of authenticity sites such as wiki and google to some extent all seem to deal with perspectives of authenticity. It seems that we also like to enjoy the detective nature of finding out your truth.
