Do you trust the news and the media to tell you the truth?

If not, do you still watch it and why?

  • Trust the media?



    Watch the media?  Yeah, purely for entertainment purposes. :P

    I trust the media to give me facts and then tell me what I should think about them.

    I think it’s important to draw from many sources. The truth is in there somewhere.

    Problem is that there will be a story that sounds good that I might like to hear but then somebody will come along and assert 'that is not what really happened'.

    If a news article includes the name 'Trump', I know there will be lies in it.

    I'm sure they tell some of the truth but who can tell with all the liberal propaganda and Trump-bashing?   They probably tell what truth suits them. No seldom watch at all.  Or read newspapers.

    I don't trust most news or media sources. No, I don't watch it because I stopped watching television and the garbage Hollywood spews out years ago. I get most of my news from two local, unbiased AM radio stations. :)

    We will never hear the truth about anything online. It's our job to go out and find the truth. From there, we decide for ourselves and hope that we are right.
