[1] Mentioned news media organizations use standards and principles of quality journalism (like objectivity, neutrality, impartiality) to a different extent. They provide us with much, much more reliable, better quality information compare to other non-journalistic sources. But even this information often is not, and in many cases can’t be absolutely, undoubtedly, 100 percent precise and impartial.  On rare occasions media content charged with misinformation or disinformation is published. Journalists are people, so mistakes or even lies are unavoidable like in any other profession, but quality news media organizations use mechanisms and procedures which minimalize probability of misleading information. Once detected, mistakes are publicly corrected – it‘s normal and very important practice.
