If the media is owned by a few powerful elite, can you truly trust the news to be unbiased?
It is a fact that most networks are owned by a select few of rich and powerful people. With this being controlled by only a select few can we truly expect the news to reflect the interest of the majority who aren't in control of the content of what is presented to us on a daily basis?
NOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nine; Lo; Pa; Nee; Nem; Ni; Nai; Aniyo; Non; Nu; Niet; Naha. In no language can the answer NO be expressed enough to answer this question.
Absolutely not. In fact, the media are masters of shaping public opinions and mass mind control. But that's how it's done in every country. People are hypnotized by news stories. And controlled by the governments via suggestions. Then people run around repeating the suggestions as facts. Sometimes the news will get an update, or apologize for a false report, but the public never hears it. The media can build or destroy careers. It's sad that most people are asleep and accept everything they hear.
There certainly are bias in many news networks, such as the famed Huffington Post and Fox News. There are no unbiased mainstream news networks around, so knowing that, I believe everyone shouldn't rely on the news 100% at all times for their so-called "facts," in which a lot of them are actually opinions and rough ideas.

To refer to the "press as the enemy of the American people' in the terms he did was the epitome of stupid. This was attacked by many GOP as attacking the very foundation of America Democracy, the Fourth Estate. So many people think that I am picking on Trump, but I am not Charlie McCarthy,...
