Parts becuase many will go to extravagant lengths to cover their arses, be it bribery, illicit extortion, or most common method threat of legal action (which might as well be considered financial and political extortion)
Parts because many of the legal, financial and technicial barriers to be crossed will not keep up with the required hype and standards of what's news-worthy in today's News for the attention deficit...
And of course because it would be hard to make it a best selling book or movie with major stars and alot of ficitious drama added *L* (coming to a theater near you, Matt Daemon in "The Good News Anchor" a drama about one Anchorman's fight to get his newscast in HD... ) Let's face it, movies about the broadcasting and news media tend to be comedies if they are *REALLY* going to get watched.... (yes "Good night and Good luck" got critical acclaim... but really, how much did it gross, including after theater distribution compared to "Anchorman")
Let us also remember that reality is defined by perception, while truth is defined as that happened in reality. As such truth is reliant on one's perception.
It's been said there's three sides to each story - Your's, Mine and the Truth.
In practice everyone has their own truth, definied by their their perception of relality, altered only by what they will and will not accept.
