Journalistic malpractice

I don’t really blame the Houston Chronicle for being taken in by an ill-conceived anti-Obama flyer that turned out to be fabricated. After all, these people are liberals, and it’s consistent with their world view when Republicans seem to be acting stupidly. But these people are also supposedly journalists. Why didn’t they even ask the flyer’s purported producers for comment before running with the story?
