Definition
heard through another rather than directly
  • If Carrie had not been an only child, we might have at least hearsay reports of dozens of other minor occurrences.
  • We have only skimpy hearsay evidence upon which to lay our foundation in this case, but even this is enough to indicate that a "TK" potential of immense magnitude existed within Carrie White.
  • If one chooses to believe the hearsay evidence of Nolan's immediate circle of friends (and to be brutally frank, they do not seem intelligent enough to lie convincingly), then Nolan took this part of the conspiracy entirely out of Christine Hargensen's hands and acted on his own initiative ... He didn't talk when he drove; he liked to drive.

There are no more uses of "hearsay" in Carrie.
