This is an increasingly common problem in the modern era of Drudge-style 
blogo-"journalism".

There was a time not so long ago when it was considered necessary to 
verify a story with three sources before going to print.

Those days are long gone in favor of "Get the scoop at any cost and we 
don't even care if it's a real scoop just get it!"

I guess honor is all but gone in our modern world.
