    when there are no liabilities for publishing a false news, just like what is happening in this part of the world, everyone that are going for sensational output to capture eyeball has all the incentive to fire first before checking...

    Agreed. The incentives are so perverse now. Evening the threat of libel can't stop "fake news" effectively imo - court moves too slowly, computation of damages are rarely very punitive, inability for people to afford litigation, etc.

    News source gets cash from viewership up front whereas court litigation is paid before the verdict = cash flow mismatch too.
