La Presse didn't do its job

LaPresse put themselves at the mercy of a remote russian journalist.

That journalist claimed that they had an audio, that was matching what was written regarding Kovalev.

Never did they ask to listen to it before publishing their story... they only believe dthe journalist when supposedly, would have said that the article was conform to what Kovalev had said.

That's way too overlying on one individual.

As ex hockey player Dominic Roussel suggest, the source is questionable.
Also, ultimately, nothing prevents that she would have been manipulated/paid by an external organization to make up that story and withdraw her version once harm was made, and claim that none of that happened.

LaPresse didn't do its job.

But what's worst, is that they don't take any responsability... They should have asked for the audio as opposed to blindly believe that russian journalist.
