Politico, Drudge Report, TMZ, Huffington Post, PFT, etc.
A lot of these things started out as bloggers and morphed into blogs and to some reliable sources of information.
As for a specific example I do remember a time when Chris Henry was often getting into trouble that PFT broke a couple of false reports that dealt with him getting arrested. There was a time when any rumor was circulating that PFT broke it as fact.
