The News Sentinel cannot establish that Schmitt-Matzen’s account is inaccurate, but more importantly, ongoing reporting cannot establish that it is accurate."
So in essence, it did happen, but to protect the family of the boy, no names are being disclosed.Not the kind of thing one wants to manufacture and still keep any credibility. Besides, if it were actually fabricated, they'd have written a better ending.Who knows, but he didn't gain anything from it.
Still, Knoxville TV station WBIR reported that it did independently confirm many critical details of the story
Yeah, I saw that too. "critical details of the story", what is critical to the story? A dying boy, a hospital and a Santa, sounds like it's most likely credible, and if it turns out that this Santa refused to divulge the name of the boy and his family to protect their privacy, knowing full well it could make him look like a fraud and a liar, he'll turnout to be an even bigger hero in the end, despite the media's attempt to discredit a goodwill story about a Christmas theme during the biggest Christian Holiday of the year.
On the one hand, leave to the sour-pusses, who couldn't find a humble, loving bone in they're body if it meant saving their miserable lives - to put out DOUBT like this. Give me a break & crawl back in your misery and darken holes - we're sick of you trying to destroy anything heartwarming, because "Misery LOVES company."On the other hand, true or not, it's a gut wrenching tale - which one of us would want to BE THERE and become a part of it...? I absolutely love my wife and kids, they're worth more than all the money and fame this world might have offered, truely, they are gifts from God. If it's true, I couldn't have dealt with it, if not... it shows something that's lacking this year in the news, compassion & joy.
My sentiments exactly.You have to remember, the left is in mental breakdown mode and looking to create pain anywhere they can.This year, 2016 will go down as the worst year in leftist American's lives since they took over the dim party.
