I have to confess that I view the news media with more than a bit of skepticism. In my lifetime the news media has evolved from reporting the news to interpreting the news. It feels as if us “villagers” just don’t have the intelligence to listen to politicians and form our own opinion. Thank goodness the media will interpret the truth for us. The media reminds me of an infamous comment made by a politician in the not so distant past who said, “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. Sounds like another way way to say I will define the truth for you and you should accept my definition.
If you watch a variety of television outlets, you will realize that there is a bias in reporting news depending on the network you are watching. Most of the bias is a result of interpretation by the writer of the news. It sure would be refreshing to have the news reported in an unbiased manner and allow us “villagers” to form our own opinions.
