WTF is going on in the media?

When did it turn from news and verifying stories to The National Enquirer. I'm no Rob Ford fan or a fan of Toronto but how can a couple of "journalists" look at a fuzzy video from a dope dealer and report that Rob Ford was smoking crack cocaine. The dope dealer wants $200,000 for this supposed video no one else has seen but the media is making out to be gospel. Of course they say they haven't seen it but that's like the small print in a contract. I expect that sort of shit in trashy grocery store tabloids, not from supposedly reliable and respectable newspapers, TV, radio and the ilk. And this is just one of many half-assed stories they report or hide other stories on page 10 to protect political parties they like. —Verify Before Publishing
