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.
