Default Wolf Problem in Sochi?

Is there a wolf problem in Sochi? Well, no, there isn’t. It was a prank that pretty much every News Channel picked up and ran with. Watch the video below to see this “story” in action.

Jimmy Kimmel, along with co-conspirator Kate Hansen from the U.S. Olympic Luge Team uploaded this video on her Twitter account to see if the media would run with the story, and they did.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that our News Media doesn’t need to verify stories anymore and just runs with them? By the way, when I went to search for a picture for this article (Google: Wolf Sochi) every media outlet in the nation pretty much has this up with “Wolf Roaming the Halls in Sochi!” Funny, but kinda sad actually.

I was watching last night when Jimmy revealed that it was him. I can't believe he did that. That girl got in trouble. The Russians weren't amused. It was pretty dumb because they're already worried about terrorism and they thought they had a security breach.

Oh my gosh. Hahaha. Wow. I can't believe Jimmy did that. Although I think he went to show just how crazy the media has gotten today thanks to the viral video "era." How crazy.

Like was said though, I think it's sad in today's world that no one investigates things anymore, they take something that comes from Twitter as truth.

It definitely shows the stupidity of the media. But if there was a terrorist attack because security was trying to look for a fake wolf, it would be disastrous and Kimmel's career would be over. I'm shocked that he didn't think of that. Plus, think of the poor people in that dorm who are afraid that a wolf was going to kill them. I really like Kimmel but that was dumb.

I think the people in the dorm would know that isn't what the dorm there looks like. Something so simple as the news to look at other pics posted and see that isn't how their quarters looks would have prevented to hysteria.

Granted - I have no clue with the quarters look like. lol

Well if you actually WATCHED the whole video, you would have seen that Kimmel had the set dressers build a replica of their dorm.
