News and accountability

If media channels can just pick a random viral post and turn it into news without verification or accountability, what right such institutions have to call themselves the fourth pillar of democracy. They are rather a hoax selling machine.
What’s the point of looking towards such mediums for truth of they start behaving like spam box of your email or the ‘udti udti khabar’ of tea point??
You see somewhere in time media took responsibility of every word they published and even apologised for errors they made but now the roles have reversed and now that responsibility lies us that what kinda news we are allowing to reach us.
And meanwhile media houses can telecast anything from any unverified source in the name of news. The Dhaka flood was one such example. I guess noone is sure of the color of water not even those who aired it!
