NY Post bans reporters, editors from using CNN, NYT, others as primary reference

New York Post has banned its reporters from solely basing articles off of reporting from CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times. NY Post editors are now requiring reporters to confirm content written by the four named publications separately before publishing it, according to an article from the NYT. The NYT cited three current journalists at the NY Post who spoke anonymously.

This is just generally a good idea. To verify information you should always check to see if two or more valid sources are independently reporting the same thing (as opposed to just reporting what someone else is reporting). Frankly Journalism nowadays is probably as unethical and biased as it has ever been.

Regardless of reason, I see only positive results from requiring more than one source when writing articles.
