That seems to be too common these days. People no longer check their facts. Instead they repeat what others say without verifying whether it is true, and they often misquote and/or misunderstand those they are quoting. i use the term "quoting" a bit liberally here, mostly they just repeat what they have heard or read and don't bother to credit the source(s).
