Is the News Fake or is that a Wikipedia Fact?
March 26, 2017 2:12pm CST
I've heard that the News is fake from so many. I believe it is manipulated to an extent, but I don't entirely believe that what we see in the media bares no weight. I do believe in doing my research though, If I see something that peaks my interest me I will have to check it out for myself. I've come to the conclusion that Wikipedia isn't 1always right and Fox News isn't always wrong. If you want a precise story about something then you are going to have to research it. Only after you have looked at the situation from every point of view, can then draw an accurate conclusion. This is impossible to do for most situations. So cut the News reporters some slack, they have a tough job to do.

I agree with you. We do need to do our own research sometimes. As a trained and experienced journalist myself, I'm very aware that it's impossible to put across each and every angle in one short story. It's also difficult to be unbiased, no matter how hard you try. We should not take everything at face value but look for other views and weigh them up to find a more accurate balance to make up our own minds.

Strong points, so glad that you could share some f your expertise with us. Just the fact that you alluded to not being able to cover everything in a "short story" is detrimental for viewers to understand. until you said that I had not thought about how much time a slot has to cover a story in a 1hr to 2hr program filled with sometimes unintentionally biased information.
