Do we trust them, or do we think they would produce anything that rewarded them sufficiently.

It's never the whole truth but it's not that difficult to discern the different ways people try to bullshit you depending on who they are. Where the right-wing tabloid will openly lie to you the higher brow left is more likely to use the exception to disprove the rule, abandoning the use of common sense.

Miwagi, Woodstock and Erib, Thanks for the comments, I wouldn't know, I gave up believing and haven't had TV in over twenty years. They can't manipulate me if they can't get to me.

Thank you. teddybear

Listening/watching the news to me makes it more manipulative. Like with hypnosis.

Reading it, gives you more ability to dechiper through the B.S and draw your own conclusions.

I certainly don't trust any UK press - Most of the UK press is Tory dominated and biased.
With government censorship (undenied) the owners & editors will deliberately generate division and mis-report, misrepresent give out misinformation & dis-information as if those of us old enough to have had a proper education and gain proper apprenticeships
& qualifications after we left school and reporters cannot even spell or get OUR historical facts right. - Since 2008 I don't have any delivered except the local freebie and that's full of bullshit and seldom read The Daily mail Express on screen.

“Do we trust them, or do we think they would produce anything that rewarded them sufficiently.”

If the media is talking about a politician, I belive you can bet the opposite of what they state is true.

I don't trust any news channel except Al Jazeera
The best news channel in the world

Sounds like I should give Al Jazeera a try.
Didn’t Al Gore sell his news network to Al-Jazeera. I love Al Gore for being the green person he is and for inventing the Internet.

Al Jazeera worth more than a try
And you will be addicted to Al Jazeera and you won't believe in any another news channel
How many journalists killed while covering a lot of events or disasters around the world
Or jailed during some tasks
Everywhere Al Jazeera journalists is targeted around the world .
That's why I love Al Jazeera
Simply Al Jazeera is the best

Well done Rainbow, not many can do without it. I dropped it when I almost put of a squash match to watch something. Then I realised it was dominating my life. Got into rows then with my ex wife because I'd rather work in my office than sit with her glued to the idiot box.

Yep, I'm with you on that Mike, thanks for the input. And your comment on education is dead right, in our day, a GCE 'A' level was harder than the degree I took twenty odd years later! Oh I won't go on but I could on that topic.
