Pupfresh is another website, much like my own that keeps fans updated on the bands they love. However, its come to my attention recently that they seem to have their facts messed up. Sometimes, they actually have no facts at up. Are they becoming the Inquirer of the music world? I certainly hope not.
Now, it is understandable that some news stories turn out to be false, a lot of the time things seem promising and then fall apart. That is when you post some sort of statement retracting it and hope people see it and take it well. However, what I just saw is just wrong, in my eyes.
Pupfresh is leading fans to believe that My Chemical Romance is planning to release something new in January 24. When I heard these rumors, considering all the recent drama with their Twitter account, I didn't believe it. Of course though, fans are very excited over this, so I was still hearing a lot of talk about it. I decided to do my own research and the article I found about it on Pupfresh's website has no information different from what everyone else has had.
Hey Pupfresh, I know you want some attention, but don't make up lies that are going to get the Killjoys all riled up for nothing. They have a supposed 'screencap' from Warner Brothers but I can find no such thing on the Warner Brothers website that looks remotely like or. Nor does their site say anything about new things from My Chemical Romance. Only mention of them on there is that they are on their label. There is nothing in their news section either. Also, when I dropped their "screencap" into Google for a quick search nothing came out.
I find that to be quite suspicious, don't you?
This is what I dislike about the journalism world, too many will take the little rumors they hear and try to make them sound as realistic as possible to get some traffic on their site. I think that is highly unprofessional, and just flat out wrong. Don't purposely spread false information. I have accidentally posted some false information in the past, but as soon as its confirmed to be untrue, I fix it. I either take the article down completely, or put a note at the bottom of it stating that it is false. I don't want to lead people on. That's how it should be.
Now that I have spoke my mind, I will be on my way. Thank you for reading this.
Note at a later date: Pupfresh appeared to just be ahead of the game, and opened their mouths before they actually should have. Gerard Way has confirmed this greatest hits album, and all the details that are known about that can be found here.
