Standards, and lacks thereof
Former Guardian writer Kate Bevan wrote a guide to smearing subjects with false accusations. As summarized by Mike Cernovich: 
- Step 1. When writing about someone, put in something true. Then "Throw in a false anecdote or two. Then, when you've got things suitably warmed up, the fun can begin."
- Step 2. "And do it in a space they don't control. It's no good doing it on their Facebook page or blog, where they can delete comments."
- Step 3. Write an article where reader comments are not allowed.
