I am just saying, that if a licencing body, keeps a record of the journalists reputation then this record could be a guide for possible readers of the journalist. One cant stop others reporting what they see(ie travel bloggers etc), even if they are not journalists, but a licence for official journalists would allow us to make a decision on whether to trust what we read or not . It is not a cut and dried thing. We also have to make up our own minds, about whether information from whichever source is reasonable or not. But, journalists working for major news bodies such as FOX, BBC... should have licences which are attached to some kind of record of their trust worthiness or untrustworthiness.
