Pierre Salinger Syndrome
The tendency for one to believe that everything he reads on the Internet is true. Named for the former White House press secretary and journalist Pierre Salinger who reportedly relayed a bogus report that he read on the Internet, stating that TWA flight 800, which crashed on July 17, 1996, had been the victim of friendly fire. Salinger, in fact, did not get his information from the Internet but from reputable security agents who were incorrect.
