Great article. As an aside how come newspapers, even "respectable" ones, never use bibliographies like this page has done?

Le monde diplomatique uses them also.

Why are newspapers allowed to assert information as true without a reference?

Mainstream newspaper don't need to do that because they're not under threat of being blacklisted for 'fake news' the way these alt news sites are.

Anything reported in a mainstream newspaper is part of the officially sanctioned record. The NYTimes and the The Guardian decide for everyone what reality is.
