I believe they don't read up on the subject because they are people too. And people believe what they are told. That said, people also believe what
they feel is true, and anything that reinforces that 'truth' is hardly ever questioned for it's validity.
We often forget that the media is made up of people. We forget that as a virtue of that fact that unbiased reporting is a fallacy created out of our
own sense of belief that truth and lies should be viewed with an objective lens. Neither is true. Nor do we practice what we preach.
There are, of course, those who simply lie as a means to an end. They tend to be the loudest voices, and the aspiring journalists who already have a
natural bias toward such beliefs will often echo the sentiment, often times unquestioningly.
Is it right considering what we've been told to expect from news organizations? Absolutely not. But isn't it about time we stop expecting the truth
to be told in an inherently bias system? Shouldn't we be seeking the truth and disseminating it ourselves?
