It's kinda scary these days, but I believe it's really become a matter of judging sources and credibility on a case by case basis. I've seen two
stories in the media that come to mind for why I don't trust professional reporters or media in general just because they are and secondary to a
decent track record of caring about being right.
The first was Isfahan for reports of a city wide evacuation that seemed to have originated with the BBC. It sparked threads here and certainly never
had come to anything more than nonsense that I ever heard. Yet, it was carried and reported by some of the big world names on their sites.
The other one was a story I tried sharing in the 9/11 forum very recently here and where it turned out the media source was flat wrong. The worst
thing was, that story also appeared all over and is still running in media. All ...without one single exception I could find, sourcing back to the
original that was simply wrong. Some sourcing by name ... others by word for word quote.
I think some of the people here put more sincere time into researching things than reporters or their staff do for another story to file by a deadline
and move on to do it again. Just my opinion.
