Do you believe that marks/grades that sports journalists&pundits give to judge the performances of footballers for each game are accurate?

No, depends on the journalists view of the game. Ratings are also influenced by the way you think the game should be played. Yes a bad performance is a bad performance and sometimes its clear. However I've seen some where it's like WTF.
Example, a pundit/Journo who only prefers attacking play, will give lower marks to a DM whose sole aim is to break up play, where as a journo who enjoys the tactical battles will give him a higher rating.
Also and this is more among local journalists but I've seen it at higher. Media organisations often have their own agenda and this does influence their rating.

I recon that most rating are copied from one journalist to another because they have not seen the game

No, of course not.
