After Jack White conducted a Q&A with subscribers to his Third Man Records Vault Club over the weekend, music news outlets picked up on some of his comments and reported that the rock star had expressed doubt over his future in music and more. Now his label is looking to correct the conversation and call out some of what it suggests is sensationalist culture on the blogosphere. 

Jack White Gives Update on His Relationship With Meg White

"From the desk of The Third Man Council For Internet Regulation and Journalistic Integrity," begins a lengthy Facebook post addressing the issue. "I know we’ve all enjoyed our game of click bait bingo with Jack White this past year.... Whatever it is, fear not because you are in the age of instantaneous negative internet gratification."

The post then touches on matters such as White stating "I don't belong here" (it was in relation to the forum, not on planet earth), that White would never tour again (though he is taking a long break from the road) and that his former White Stripes bandmate Meg White won't answer his calls, about which they say it doesn't matter.
