Quote:One standard being that because a media source can and has been wrong in the past than they are always wrong. This again is one directional for them.
This is a completely fair and true statement. I think it's also a fair and true statement though that the media/news net-works/papers/etc...have some ways to go to regain the publics trust in them.
It seems every news report now is personal commentary. Where in the past the news was presented just as fact. And then AFTERWARDS they reporters would say something like...and now for my personal commentary.
I think it's why its so easy to say "fake news" because the news is present as ONLY the reports personal commentary. I think they can get their message across by just presenting the FACTS and then drawing their conclusions afterwards. It shows their bias...but it also shows their reasoning behind their bias to the point that the public can see that the information presented backs up the reporter despite his/her admitted bias.
Then again maybe I expect too much from my media as well as those watching it being able to see the truth presented this way.
