    it's one that drives me nuts with even "good" reporting.  

    The most important rule of journalism is to triple check your facts.  I tend to think most reporters pull their background info from other newspapers, without delving into it, cuz it's published, it must be good.  

    Secondly, too few reporters seek to provide a proper context for their facts.  Wouldn't it just be common sense to chat with a lawyer or two to understand the legal context of your reporting?
