In the USA, it seems like the large news sources have little journalistic integrity. I wonder if this has been a problem in the past, or if there was ever a period when there were good sources of news. If there were, I want to know if it was because news outlets kept the other news outlets in check. If one source got it wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if the other outlets made a big deal about. It doesn't seem like there's much fact checking going on between the outlets in the present, leaving the populace (who don't have the resources) to verify the truth.
