In 2008-2009, the JPost was the ONLY media outlet of many reporting on Israel, which agreed to look into widely reported fake news about supposed "settler violence" in Hebron.
The allegation was that "settlers" had been "throwing acid in the face of security force/s". Having done the legwork and established that the news was fake, JPost was again the ONLY media outlet having the integrity to report that the story was false. https://www.jpost.com/Israel/Claim-settlers-used-acid-against-police-in-Hebron-unsubstantiated
In contrast to the low-budget JPost, swanky TIME Magazine, for example, still carries the false "acid" story to this day: http://content.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1864616,00.html.
Of course, TIME Magazine has never been much good at correcting fake news; perhaps it is just too much work, and too expensive, for TIME to retract all the falsehoods that flood their website.
Recall, for example, that in 2016, TIME Magazine published an article about a 'Palestinian graphic designer' that Israel had killed. Despite repeated requests, initially from an un-named Israeli NGO and later also from Israel's Government Press Office, TIME magazine refused, for months, to correct the article and publish that a 'Palestinian graphic designer' killed "by Israel" was not in his studio using Adobe Photoshop when accosted by Israeli security forces. He was instead committing a terror attack, in which he succeeded in killing 3 Israelis. https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4779913,00.html
Kudos to the low-budget JPost, for being a more righteous media outlet than, say, TIME Magazine -- which reportedly generates revenue of over $150 million annually yet seems to falls short of the JPost in terms of willingness to report the simple truth!
