HIV rumors go viral at UNR

Storify works best if you start at the bottom, then work your way up.

  1. As of today, the Nevada Sagebrush still has an un-updated story on their website.

  10. Both KRNV and KTVN picked up the story. KRNV left the narrative open, while KTVN’s denied it. As it turned out, KRNV’s ended up getting linked to by a number of different sources

    The #UNR health center is denying rumors of an HIV outbreak on campus, but @TheSagebrush sez 75-100 students checked in past 48 hrs for HIV
    Wed, Apr 04 2012 18:56:46
  13. At 3:23, Student Health Center Director Cheryl Hug-English sent out an email saying that any rumors about the outbreak didn’t appear to have a factual basis. However, she did say that about 75-100 students had checked into the health center for STD testing. It is free STD testing week, after all.

    Alright, so in the last few days we’ve been hearing rumors about an HIV outbreak in the dorms at UNR. One of our reporters called up Jerome Maese, the director of residential life, and he said he has been getting phone calls about it, but can’t confirm it’s true. Anybody with information about this please privately message me.
    Also, if anyone knows why Mike Ball was booted from the Nevada Wolf Pack football team please private inbox me.

  23. At this point, several Nevada Sagebrush reporters began to look into the matter. Reporters sent out tweets and posted in an open Facebook group. Most people didn’t see the addition of “unproven” or “possible,” and began to assume that an actual outbreak had taken place.

    My prayers go out to the students from UNR who recently found out they are infected with HIV. Its going to be ok, its not the end.
