There are two so’s in the sentence. What about this?

Slander can harm a person or a business’ reputation, so reporters must verify all facts and statements in order to avoid being held libel for what is reported to the public.

That’s a good alternative, but please don’t get carried away with avoiding repetition. Words often appear more than once in a sentence.
