Rumor is the most primitive way of spreading stories-by passing them on from mouth to
mouth. But civilized countries in normal times have better sources of news than rumor. They
have radio, television, and newspapers. In times of stress and confusion, however, rumor
emerges and becomes rife. At such times different kinds of news are in competition: the press,
television, and radio versus the grape vine. Especially do rumors spread when war requires
censorship on many important matters. The customary news sources no longer give out
enough information. Since the people cannot learn through legitimate channels all that they
are anxious to learn, they pick up 'news' whenever they can and when this happens, rumor
thrives. Rumors are often repeated even by those who do not believe the tales. There is a
fascination about them. The reason is that the cleverly designed rumor gives expression to
something deep in the hearts o the victims-the fears, suspicions, forbidden hopes, or daydreams which they hesitate to voice directly. Pessimistic rumors about defeat and
disasters show that the people who repeat them are worried and anxious. Optimistic rumors
about record production or peace soon coming paint to complacency or confidence-and often
to overconfidence. Which of the following best describes the authors personal attitude toward
rumor?
