Anyway, the problem that i've encountered is this news article about some emails that were allegedly leaked showing that scientists are in fact like everyone else. They lie and manipulate data in order to get what they want. The problem is that these emails have yet to be verified as true. To be kind of fair, the article states that these emails aren't verified yet, but i'm willing to bet that over 75% of the readers are going to skim over that part and read just the "facts". In my opinion, wait until things are facts before writing a news article about them. I also think the word "alleged" shouldn't even be allowed in news.
It's the same with court reporting. They say all these things that the person is charged with, then they start talking about what that person "allegedly" did. They throw the word "alleged" in there and expect people to be unbiased. This doesn't happen. People don't even process the word "alleged". To them, that person did everything that he/she's charged with which makes the court system a little unfair.
This is one of the many things that bugs me about media today. They're so interested in ratings that they've completely lost touch of reporting actual news. These emails probably are true, but wait a couple days and make sure they're true, otherwise you're not a newspaper, you're a gossip column.
