Do you trust the media to portray reality truthfully and accurately?

  • Depends on source

    I find that some sources provide information based on research and still allow the reader to draw their own conclusions. Two sources that come to mind are US national radio programs. Others include websites and are topic oriented such as TED.Com and seem to be informative and not necessarily biased.

  • Evil empire of the world

    They are owned and run by the 1%... Remember Hitler's ministry of propaganda.. Well, welcome to America's Hitler News. So many journalists have sold their souls to the devil. This heartbreaking to see how many people actually believe the garbage spewed by the Main Stream Media. Cover nothing really going on in the world thats helpful to citizens... Just choose what they want us to know

  • No no no

  • They show what you want

    The media does not report the news, the media serves to sell itself and sell advertising within itself. The media, therefore, does not actually report reality, but rather reports the reality that people want to make out of the facts, often times in a fashion that departs from the truth considerably.

  • No you can't trust the media

    The media is out for its own goals and can not be trusted. The media is looking to make as much money as possible, which often means spinning stories and creating controversy. It would be wrong to think they are going to go out and give the truth about all the stories.

  • Media protray's what is more profitable

    No, I do not trust the media portray reality either truthfully or accurately. It can be seen through the same story being aired on different news channels that the stories can differ largely. I believe that the media will portray the story that brings in or will bring in the most viewers. Truth is not always the best selling story so it may be altered to portray a more interesting story.

  • Everything Seems Biased

    In my experience reading the news, I have noticed it has become harder and harder to find an unbiased and well rounded report on anything. Few news articles or reports give the full facts or cover both sides and it has been getting worse over the years. Since most articles lack information or contain bias, I find it difficult to trust the media.

  • Media Too Biased

    Ever since media bias was allowed in the mid-1980s, there has always been something called "editing" or "commentary" that seems to miss important facts. One recent example was a "massive" study debunking the use of multivitamins to help cure colds and other diseases. A few health professionals looked closer and realized what happened--the studies that were used were outdated, too narrow, and didn't take into account several factors that could have affected one's consumption of vitamins. The mainstream media is all about headlines, sound bites and page views. With the bottom line at stake, sensationalistic headlines are all that work.
