It’s true that every organization—newspapers in particular—can’t have fact-checkers. But there are other ways to instill that same culture of honesty. When I worked at Washington City Paper there was a hard rule about a writer’s errors per year ratio. You get one wrong, you were invited in for an unpleasant chat. You got another wrong, you were invited in for a more unpleasant chat and you went on probation. You got another wrong and you were shown the door.
