Fights Staged for YouTube Videos

Who would have thought that fight videos posted to YouTube are the rage among teenagers and young adults?  Who would have thought that some of these video are actually staged by some individuals to promote a their own bravado for one reason or another?  That is apparently the case as detailed in a report from the Chicago Tribune of five eighth graders at Benjamin Middle School in West Chicago.  They staged a fake fight in the school bathroom for later posting on YouTube.  They were caught by previewing the video on the cell phone they used to record the incident.  Could it be that you can't believe everything you see on the web?  Is the Internet going the way of wrestling?  Read the details here.
