I don't believe the questions should be grouped into a bigger question + answer set just on the basis of them being similar. As [Sterno put it on the gaming stackexchange site][1]:

I think the problem with these claims is that they come from current news events. Several will be cleared up (or forgotten about) within a week or two. I am not in favor of banning current-event questions, rather I would suggest a compulsory wait-time before they show up. Tag + shelve, and open back up in a pre-determined time. A similar thing happened to [one of my questions][2], and I see perfect sense in it.
