19. Exactly. Reporters are now little more than stenographers.

They just repeat press releases verbatim, or at best, attribute it to the person who released the statement. But they almost never inform the reader as to whether the statement is true. I guess they figure that is Politifact's job, because, uh, they do it so well.
