Srila Prabhupad always told us, don’t believe everything that you read in the newspapers. Material people can tell you something and when lot of people say, they take it as true but it is not necessarily true. Like they could be cheating you, or they could have imperfect senses, or they could make mistakes, or they could be in illusion. So just as ten people turned Bhagavan into a ghost although he is alive, similarly we can get cheated by some news, they all say the same thing, we may think it is true.
