Those Damn Internets

Consider this paragraph from the Post on the exoneration of Michael Schiavo regarding abuse allegations:

The records show that DCF took seriously its duty to investigate abuse allegations, which became familiar fodder on the Internet: Terri Schiavo was dirty and unkempt. She did not receive proper dental care or rehabilitative therapy. She was kept in isolation. Her husband beat her and broke her bones. He wanted her dead for her money or to remarry. He pumped her full of insulin, hoping to kill her. He often asked, "When will (she) die?" Her lips were cracked and dry.

They weren't just "familiar fodder on the Internet." I seem to remember hearing about those allegations in multiple media outlets.
