Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  What is the difference between an iRumor and a conspiracy theory?

A:  iRumors are rumors that circulate on the Internet. They can be about anything. A conspiracy theory is an idea or a set of ideas that explains an incident, event or situation that was plotted and executed in secrecy by a powerful person or group. Many iRumors involving the government can be considered to be conspiracy theories. In both cases, iRumors and conspiracy can either be determined as Real, a Hoax, or Unproven.  In some cases if a conspiracy theory is about an event that has yet to happen, we could determine it as Under Investigation.
