Default Do you trust the media?

Do you trust the media? Or when do you say enough is enough? I think that sometimes they just go hog while on things and should not be posting certain things. Such as some of the photos a friend showed me of the Boston tragedy. They were up online and some of the families had not even been notified. Could you imagine if it were you looking at photos and saw your brother, sister, mother, father, cousin, etc injured there? How would that make you feel? I could not imagine that and just felt like ranting for abit.

The graphic images, I dislike some, but understand it. What I hate is how the media, ALL of them, report stuff they hear or make sh!t up! News used to be reporting facts! That's non existent anymore. It's all about being the first one to say anything, true or not! Which is why I rarely watch the news.
So to answer the title question, NO

Mainstream media is a joke which people fall for... just look at the bullshit and staged coverage of sandy hook, the boston bombing, and 9/11...

Nope.

I don't know that they report any less accurately than before, its just that now we have other outlets.

No can't stand them, even non-major stories get twisted with minute details making a lot of difference to the reader.

Depends who the media organisation is.

Seeing as we get 95% plus of our information about the world via mass media, if you have a blanket distrust of it then what are you left with? For an increasing number, it means that they turn to sources of information that are worse in every single way then the mass media sources they rejected. And the internet makes everyone a publisher.

Ten years ago I thought it was great that people had a healthy scepticism about mass media. Now I think that many are throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Having said that, all of the Murdoch outlets are unremittingly awful. Fox News anyone?

Actually, that reminds me - I was in Italy recently and I couldn't believe how graphic some of the images were they showed of people who had been murdered. They really didn't spare anything.

And I agree with your point, but I'd call it a matter of decency rather than trust.
