Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

One shouldn't trust websites who play at online news agency. I am a bit surprised that an professional reporter could fall for this outfit.

FIFY.

The sad fact is that on several key issues, the paid news agencies have had a worse track record than unpaid hobbyists.

No, look that doesn't works. Two wrongs don't make a right and the deficiencies of the professional agencies don't excuse the delusions of outfits like Mint press.

Never claimed they did.

No substitute for doing your own due diligence.

I'm beginning to think that if TV stations want to show footage that isn't live, there ought'a be a law requiring them to show an actual screen showing the footage. So when they steal from each other, you could tell by the number of nested screens how far removed from the original the footage is.
