Description

How should editors and reporters react when a journalist or a project goes off the tracks? We've all seen it: a respected writer turns out to have fabricated his or her work. A project seemingly built on solid reporting turns out to be poorly sourced and wrong. Sources mislead and manipulate, fact-checkers don't check, editors don't question. Here are case  studies from Germany and South Africa that provide a needed warning on why we need to keep checking everything and making sure we do the best possible. Our profession depends on it
