Does the news media tell the truth?

My husband watches a lot of news channels, I am talking about prime time, like Fox news, CNN, etc. Do you think they tell the truth or do they only tell us what they want us to hear? Is it propaganda or truth? I often wonder if they tell us everything about the war in Iraq, or even politics. I wonder how much is twisted to suit their own purposes or raise their ratings. I sometimes watch the news, but I find it either depressing or sickening, especially when they go on and on about the antics of a celebrity like Britney Spears.
