- Oct 1, 2012You have a very good point. However you have not taken into account the onerous defamation laws here. The mere threat of invoking such laws here hits right at the wallet of the publishers and unless they have deep pockets they just cannot afford to pursue even solid investigative stories. The bad guys know this only too well and can intimidate the smaller publications with considerable impunity. The major press players are often close to politicians, business leaders and other powerful interests and will only go after a scandal if it suits their own particular agenda.
