A bad 24 hours for journalism

Since last night, we’ve witnessed several examples of unacceptable news reportage.
First, a new woman emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh but even some journalists can’t believe what they are watching.  The new woman’s story is based on a corroborating witness who wasn’t at the party.  What?  Apparently he heard something about the party after it happened.  Again, what?
Jedediah Bila wrote this:   
New Yorker piece doesn’t even confirm that Kavanaugh was at the party, contains an admission of memory gaps by Ramirez due to intoxication, and has numerous people on the record disputing her claim. 
Once again, I’m awaiting facts: evidence, corroboration, possible testimony
Caleb Hull put it this way:    
Timeline:
• She didn’t know who it was for 35 years
• Kavanaugh was nominated
• She met with Dem lawyer for 6 days to “assess her memories”
• Accused Kavanaugh
• She still isn’t even sure it was him
• All the witnesses deny it
• Kavanaugh denies it
• Other outlets passed on story
It looks as if the second woman’s story has more holes than the first woman’s story.
How can a business continue to be this sloppy?  Don’t these news organization have editors or people on staff who double check this stuff?
Journalism did not do much better on Monday morning.  First, we heard that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein had resigned.  Then we learned that he was on his way to The White House to resign or get fired.  It was all because of that Friday story about the Deputy AG preparing a case to bring down the President through the 25th Amendment.
Well, it turns out that he did go to the White House but it was prearranged and now he will meet with President Trump on Thursday.  To be honest, I did not understand how the Deputy AG was on his way to see the president in the White House on the day President Trump was in New York.  Maybe I’m too logical.
The second “woman story” is just bad journalism.  The Deputy AG story is just another case of “sources” not knowing what they are talking about.
In the meantime, journalism suffers again.
