    Welcome to the forums, moniquemr.

    Please amend your profile. I can't believe you're an English teacher.

    I want to know if this sentence is correct or not and if I have to use 'in' and not 'to' or 'of'.

    'The reports in newspapers are always accurate'.
    The sentence is now grammatically correct but factually far from the truth.
