Accuracy in Media

CNN’s Jake Tapper lashed out at the media on Twitter for the lack of accountability in reporting on the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.

Last week Tapper singled out NBC for its complicity in the scandal.

Tapper exposed one of the fundamental problems in journalism with his tweet: There is no functioning body that can hold the media accountable, unlike doctors and lawyers, meaning that each news organization is essentially self-policing, and is, therefore, more likely to protect their interests than demand accountability.
