Who is Christie Setzer? What are her sources? What is her background? What is her track record for telling the truth? Who has she worked for in the past and who does she work for now?
Maybe she’s related to the leader singer of the Stray Cats. Meow, Christy.
Don't engage them on the "facts" or issues they bring up until you vet them. Who are they? What is their credibility? Who pays them and who has paid them? Unless they can prove that they are not inveterate liars, paid operatives and aren't nuttier than squirrel poop based on their past history there is no reason to discuss anything they bring up with them. The press is the enemy and should be treated accordingly.
