This is just another perfect example of how uninformed these journalists are. But thinking back to my own education, I now see that there is method to this madness.
I graduated from the University of Miami with a BS in Broadcast Journalism. In my four years of "higher learning," never once do I recall a professor telling us to be even remotely skeptical of government mouthpieces. Never do I once recall a professor insisting that we do our own research. In fact, everything was about reading AP stories off the wire and re-writing them for our own purposes. It was about using correct grammar... saying "alleged" when appropriate... and meeting deadlines.
From what I have seen, today's journalists aren't doing any research. They are sitting in front of their computers, pulling stories off the wires and regurgitating facts while intermittently inserting their own opinions.
