PSN: journalists reporting misinformation a problem for Sony

Gamer.Blorge writes: "There is no question that Sony faces a PR nightmare as many news sites are running rampant reporting anything that sounds sensational without questioning the validity of the source. Most of the problems stem from smaller sites looking for quick hits, but even larger sites such as CNET have been guilty of making similar mistakes.

For example CNET recently posted an article titled: “Did Sony know its security was outdated?” This story was circulated via hundreds of sites across the Web like wild-fire."

Even in this very comment section, you still see some people trying to spread false information as fact.

They just want to blame Sony for EVERYTHING for no reason at all.

Well I know the reason, but I'm not gonna say it. ;)

I wouldn't call them journalists. I would call them ignorant-minded fools who don't even know what's going on but are spreading falsehoods and lies just to further an agenda.

you must fact check your statements. If these statements turn out to be false, you must then retract the article. That's why I find it hard to call most sites on here journalist. They do very little fact checking, and almost never recant. Smaller site like Thebitbag and HHG break news, but bigger sites (IGN, Gamepro) copy and paste the story and get the credit. Only difference is one get's paid for it and the other does it for a hobby. I'd trust the review of a man/woman who doesn't get paid rather than the one who does.
