Part of being free means being responsible. You are responsible for what you consume. In all aspects, including content. If you are unsatisfied with the quality, you are free to leave or to contribute something you deem 'good'. Others are free to look at it and form their opinions. But you, you can't escape responsibility for yourself. There are no excuses, only your choices. Chose the content you consume accordingly and you will have a great time here.

I've yet to see a truly infallible source. Do I dig into research and fact check every headline I read? No, but a broken clock is right twice a day. I would challenge to you that you must look at the "reputable sources" told to you by others, chances are that the source just aligns with their beliefs and bias'. It doesn't make it right. Sure there is some shit posting and straight bullshit around here. No different from any other similar site. The best thing that can be done I think, is when you see something that is factually incorrect to speak up and cite your sources. You may get some interesting discussion and differing viewpoints. This is what will make the site better than any other because even if it goes against the grain, it will not be censored.

most of the stories there are from less that reputable sources.

i believe that intelligent and discerning consumers of information have realized that what you call "reputable sources" are media outlets that have been bought and paid for by some entity thats trying to engineer public opinion and knowledge in a way that fulfills their agenda. additionally, who gets to decide which sources are reputable, and why?

is it possible that the less controlled the environment is the less demanding we are about the quality of the products presented?

no. the less controlled the environment is, the more actual unredacted/edited is available.

Does this mean that if we gave people complete freedom there would less evolution?

im not sure what you mean by this.

The articles are crap, but my primary purpose here is not reading the articles, its interacting with the userbase. If you want better articles, crawl reuters, and repost here.

Sounds like you prefer branding over quality of content.
