Some semblance of journalistic standards from the mainstream media. It's a start.

The Associated Press has reportedly fired journalist Jim LaPorta, who was one of two bylines that ran with the false report that Russian missiles hit Poland. The only source of that story was anonymous, which goes against AP's policy.

The retracted story alleged that a senior US intelligence official said that Russian missiles "crossed into NATO member Poland, killing two people."

I mean the guy could have had an anonymous source, but any journalist is suppose to verify via multiple sources so they don't get bit on the ass like this schmuck did.
