📺Do You Trust Television News and Internet News?
Television networks and internet news portal are our main source for political news. Recently, we can also obtain news from social media. But, the credibility of the last source is still questionable.
However, we have seen in the last few years that the media is not doing what they should. Naturally, the media should be neutral and inform the public an unbiased facts and information. But, the media today is clearly biased and used as a tool to manipulate people opinion to their advantage.
For neutral news, maybe we can still trust the traditional news networks. But, for political news, we must carefully analyze to which side the network is affiliated.
In this condition, do you still trust the news from these giant media?
I mostly rely on internet for the news and they turn out to be true. They are reliable news.
Well, I don’t trust government owned TV stations and online news, these are the carriers of lies.
Yes true they may carry the lies but everyone else becomes conspirators when there is disagreement so it may be better to get the news from them as only they can tell you what the next move is.
Reputable news agencies normally carry accurate and reliable news. Social media news are the ones that should be taken with a pinch of salt until fully verified by the people affected by such news items ,or by reputable news agencies.
I agree with you
I rarely see television.
I mostly look at my cellphone for information and I think I trust the news on the internet.
What makes you doubt?
Not always as they can be biased depending on the views of the reporter
For me currently i do not trust Facebook,what sap or called social media news.i only trust written paper news,BBC news,CNN and some other international televisions.
I agree with you to many fake things are being spread over other platforms BBC and CNN is the only options left to get the real news updates
I also do not trust government owned televisions and newspapers especially in Africa because news reporters are biased, they cannot be independent in news analysis,as breaking news against government can make one loose job ,so in order to remain with bread ,you have to continue giving news which are in the interest of the government in power.
Most of the time, i rely in internet news, they seems to be trustful, and easy to access at any time. You can find new wherever you are with your phone, tablets ….
Nowadays it is so many sources for news in the media. It seems to be a lot of such kind of sources that are not trustworthy. You have to use your critical sence when you read them or look at video clips and TV news. I think official networks are reliable, but it is also TV stations that have different approach to political news and situations. The big newspapers are normally objective in their presentation of the news.
I trust the news from traditional news media. When I’m news, go to CNN, BBC, sky news etc. They’re more reliable to me.
Jackson I agree and feel they are more reliable
I can only watch television news at home ,i don’t watch television too much nowadays, I’m connected to internet with my mobile phone, i have access to many news everywhere around the world.
In the past we used to watch news on TV and the radio, nowadays things has becomes easier, with your phone and internet connection you can access all news around the world.98% of world channels have their pages on different social media where people can find informations,news,and reporting.
Yes,you are right, television news are more accurate than internet news where everybody can publish whatever he/ she wants. Lot fake news circulate on facebook and instagram.
I prefer television news over internet news. Television news broadcast the fact about the happiness in the world.
I personally watch a mix.Here in the U.S we get Smart news on our phones.I watch it while commuting.When I am at home I watch the television or I listen to the radio news.It is great that we can watch news in any way we want to now. You can even go into the Mac Store now and watch it.
I have stated using the CNN and SABC news channels I no longer listen to what is shared on social media and or the internet I feel the media is using its ability to scare us and manipulate us. There is just way to much fake news going about it has become really hard to focus on the real stuff. That is why I started supporting news channels that I know relays the real news because honestly I am tired off this fake nonsense causing unnecessary distress. Maybe there is truth in the fake news I don’t know what to believe anymore however I think it is wise to only listen to what real news channels share with us as that is where all the real talk about our current situations is coming from.
There are more fake news on social media, i totally agree with your opinion, but not all of them are fake.Many of them are true.yes supporting channels that provide good news is very important to encourage them to keep doing the good work.
