  • I don't disbelieve it but I am aware there is usually much more to some stories than are broadcast on TV . Their biggest sins are omission , they are more interested in crime and celebrities than on serious news . I increasingly rely on pint media for more accurate and detailed news coverage .

  • Nope. I'm not a full-fledged conspiracy theorist, but I'm not an mindless drone either.

  • Not really. They have declared themselves to be pro-liberal, pro-progressive, and endorse candidates. How can you 'trust' anything after that. They are the spin machine for the progressive movement. That tells me everything they report will have a liberal progressive bias and slant to it.
