If I have detailed knowledge on a subject, I notice that the journalists often get things wrong. Even with easy stuff. Dr. Dean Edell spoke about the poor quality of medical journalism. I must assume they get things wrong in other areas as well.
There was a guy who would send out phony press releases. The names and contact information were fake. Yet a bunch of outlets ran with these stories because they made no attempt to verify. They have run urban legends as factual stories.
Why would I want to pay for this?
