Media organisations are our primary source of information regarding current events. If they don't supply us with accurate information, who will?

Since I only have 5K to explain my first few argument will state why media is not a reliable source

1) Media over hypes everything that people do, gives too much attention
2) Some media outlets have a leaning side to them which makes their claims bias
3) They completely overstep their boundary with people and cause arguments
4) Big media outlets desire money, which means they will "clickbait" their titles
5) Overhyping leads to nuclear war

I would have to agree with con, Social Media has become so unreliable, because it always embellishes what really happened, and often when people catch this, they add to that which is already been changed from what it should say, and many aspects of Social Media are now so distorted, that the real truth behind everything is lost.
