    Walter Cronkite has been gone for a long time. Truth and honesty are not part of the media world. It is all about what the advertising world can sell to keep the media outlet in business

    It kills me when I hear the term "Free Media" being used by intellectual political observers when they contrast the media in the west to that of China, Russia or other authoritarian states. And what they are referring to is the media that is owned and operated by large, highly organized corporations whose interest in operating their media operations profit driven. There ought to be a law the prevents media companies from earning more money than is necessary to fund the operation of investigating a story and disseminating that story.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like all of these ideas have their limits. Eventually once anything loses balance, it’s just as detrimental as the first decision we wish to get rid of.

    I think that in terms of science 'fact', people think these are facts, where people in the sciences (like me) are taught that we have theories based on the best currently available data and that as this data changes, we adjust the theories and test them until we get close enough to a credible answer that is usually, still just a theory. I think it is a difference between perception and reality, it is why people think that scientists are completely fact-driven and not creative, whereas the most successful scientists are the most creative. I know this does not address the main news media question, but I think most of life is about discerning truth from perception and manipulation and to do that we all have to be aware of our internal biases and understand that most people are in the silent middle and not the loud fringes of ideas.
