Am I missing something here?

I thought one of the hallmarks of journalism was the reliance on multiple sources, on fact-checking, on getting the story right before it goes into print.

Apparently, I was wrong.

And some journalists are waking up to this as well.

But not in time, it seems.

One of the beautiful things of the blog world is instant, collaborative fact-checking. If ("if"? - Ed.) I post something here that's patently untrue, it'll be corrected by those in the know. Can any one source of news compete against the entire Internet?

Ask Mary Mapes. She knows.
