Does it? I thought it's just a filter so that the journals don't publish something embarrassingly ridiculous, like say something that might upset the apple cart or that is clearly nonsense. The journals don't seriously check most research. Peer review sounds good. Does it mean anything more than say the brand behind a publication? Self-regulation works for cartels and professionals. Perhaps the problem is just about everyone has stopped reading critically.
