Too Big To Fact Check? ‘Not Our Job’ Says AP Editor

How will we ever be able to tell their stories if we have so many that are doing such incredible damage through these false news reports? Unconscionable. We need to hold them accountable.

Let’s start with Vickery’s suggestion.

“If the lack of media accountability bothers you, do this: tweet this article to every mainstream news source that got this story wrong (you can also follow me on Twitter @viglet). And the next time you see an error from any news organization, demand corrections. Politely contact the reporter, their editor, their corrections department, their standards editor and if necessary, their editorial board and CEO—and don’t give up until they do something.”

And here is a list of news agencies that you can forward this story for them to determine if they want to continue to support AP.
