  • Yes. It automatically becomes the truth when I hear it on Tv.

  • I don't believe the mainstream media nor anything that comes out of the mouth of a politician.  Any media on the side I sift through and Leary about unless they have info that backs up what they are saying, then I will consider it.

  • I don't believe anything without question that I read on the Internet or hear on the TV or radio. But I also have a hard time believing that the government is behind a lot of the news stories. Some of them probably, but I wouldn't say a lot.

  • I believe the media, itself, sensationalizes and jumps to air stories before all of the facts are in. As far as the Gov goes, I believe that in many cases, they can not tell the public the entire story, due to national security reasons.
