So let’s say there’s a fairly major thing in the news. One day in conversation with a friend, you ask “hey- You know some of those people. You worked there around that time, didn’t you? What’s up with this?”
They tell you that there is a lot more to the situation which isn’t being reported, and that it’s way more serious than they’re letting on. They won’t say anything more (assume an NDA, being there illegally, national security, whatever reason), but it’s obvious they know at least some of what happened, which is not public record. This is someone you’ve known for years- decadeS, almost- and you trust them completely. A cursory glance at their employment record would show that they were at least tangentially involved with part of the incident.
What do you do with this knowledge?
You know that this source is far more reputable than anyone reporting on the thing, but all I have is anonymous hearsay.
What do you do with that?
