    It’s sad enough that I can’t trust the media it’s worse that nothing is able to be done about it except turn it off.

    I quit watching TV four years ago, and it's getting closer to five. If anything, I just listen to the weather, and walk on by.

    We get Fox News on our local radio station. Short, sweet, without the brouhaha. Hannity comes on later, and I read a magazine and listen until he repeats himself.

    I trust the news media like I trust the used car salesman when he says "Trust Me". I check my back pocket for my wallet and then reach for my pistol.

    Do you believe there are any truly unbiased news sources left? Or, is most news written with the purpose of getting attention, good or bad.

    Have you ever called out a new source for not reporting the full story?

    I've all but quit watching national news. I do still follow local news, they're better but they still are far from perfect when it comes to jumping on stories.

    1) I'd say on average about once a week I see a head line that points me in one direction, but then when I read it... the story was in a different direction. For example... on Yahoo Homepage they have paid sponsor stories inline with their regular news stories. More often than not, the paid sponsor stories are misleading.

    2) Sadly I am aware of only 1 network that I've seen "real" news. The worst part? I can't always get reception of this network... so I don't get to watch it often but the news I've seen on PBS seems to be the most unbiased.

    3) Yes. A local CBS station.

    It's in my opinion that profits drive news. Worst of all, people who call themselves journalists are bought and paid for. Coming from someone who attended journalism school and has been an Associate Editor to 3 national magazines (off-road titles) it's very clear by the language they use in describing certain issues. The viewer is pointed in a particular direction without them even knowing. It's all very sad.
