Also, they reported on this before the HHM right? Did their report just come out of nowhere or was it based on the Salish Lodge post or Lynch's tweet or just came out of nowhere? Interesting if that's the case.
HHM was first, but they were the first to publish an article, in which they cited "sources." Those sources also got Ghostbusters right, so I guess they're hit or miss.
This is kinda their gambit.
One of the only things in the world I'm a bigger fan of than "Twin Peaks" is Ghostbusters
(I actually just hopped over here from my Ghostbusters
forum!), and their so-called plot and character details for the upcoming movie aren't even correct. If you actually click through to the piece from the "Peaks" one, you'll see that their character breakdown says the two young kids "meet." However, the only official details the studio has since provided are that Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and Mckenna Grace are a family, the latter two being the two kids. Obviously, two family members are not going to meet in the film, not to mention, the younger cast is rounded out by two others that are conspicuously absent from WGTC's breakdown, played by Logan Kim and Celeste O'Connor. Since people don't reread the original story and see that it doesn't align with the stuff we know now, the link looks like it adds to the site's credibility.
Another recent Ghostbusters
piece from WGTC also repeats the embarrassingly dumb internet rumor that Bill Murray was sued to appear in Ghostbusters
(2016), which is something that comes from the Sony leaks but falls apart if you know how to...read a calendar (the email they're citing is from 2013, the same leaks prove that Feig pitched a reboot for the very first time an entire year later).
The "Twin Peaks" thing stinks of the same setup. They got arrogant and mentioned two seasons, I believe. They are no doubt hedging their bets on the series returning, and then they'll link to that article and say they were one of the first to report on the show being renewed without mentioning half of what they wrote was BS.
The real question is what their track record would look like the other way around: dig up every rumor article and find out how many were debunked rather than let them wave a few vaguely true stories in front of their readers every time they report on a wild rumor.
