Pay Attention, Please
This last section of Haiman really emphasizes that we have a responsibility as a reader. I have this website booked under my favorites because I am constantly checking what I read or hear on the news. I think, that while it is very easy to spread a lie or an "unfair" piece of information, it is just as easy to get caught. We have the access to the Internet 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From our phones, from our laptops, from our desktops; we are always connected. We can always check a fact. The problem is that most people just don't. They have their favorite news source and they stick with it no matter what is published (ahem Fox news, fair and balanced uh-huh sure).
So I will take Haiman's section as a call to increase public awareness of fact checking. Just because a journalist can publish something "unfair" doesn't mean the public should let them get away with it.
