A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
A song some radio stations are banning, the song you are about to listen to, was played at a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert.
They received an immediate resounding standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it! Sadly, major radio stations wouldn’t play it because it was considered politically incorrect’. Consequently, the song was never released to the public. Now Congress is getting involved. Your President is saying that is not fit for release because it offends so many. So America , see what you think…
