      Wow, fact-checking that story would have been enormously difficult.

      I mean, a whole phone call to someone anyone at its sister newspaper would have been nearly impossible to pull off.  

      I think we simply hold people to journalistic standards that are simply too high these days. You're expecting Morrow during the McCarthy era; Woodward and Bernstein during Watergate; or Cronkite during the Vietnam war?
