    Was "In the Business" For 25 Years

    so I personally know how the media works. Even reality shows aren't real - wake up and smell the coffee people!  TV is entertainment - those news guys you see??? They are PAID ACTORS, they don't write what they read, many times they don't even agree with it...

    My Local Media Sucks

    Our local news sucks. You can catch the evening news at 5pm, 6, 10 and 11. All they do on the 5:00, 6 and 10 shows is tell you what they are going to cover at 11pm! I hate the media in general. They are just mouthpieces for our government and we are expected to open our mouths...

    Ignorance Is Bliss

      My dislike for the media has always been with me. It wasn't until recently though that I began noticing it. What I'm talking about it the way the media over publicizes events. One example and one that's more recent is the Northern Illinois University shooting. Ok, yes it's...

    Propagating fear since the beginning of the

    newspaper. When something bad or disturbing happens, such as murder, rape, etc, they proliferate the air waves with it, the tv, the internet, the news, polluting everyone's mind with fear. And so the fear and mistrust increases more and more and more, so that people become...

    Let Me Report...

    OK, so it's not the actual media I dislike.  I believe that our freedom of the press, of speech, and our media are all important to the survival of our freedom.But, when you turn on the news and all you get is p!ss poor reporting, opinions, and one sided coverage, you really...

    I don't know about worldwide,

    but American media is so untrustworthy and quite idiotic at times. People are influenced by so many videos and advertisements just because they watch the "news" and I can only assume the average IQ will drop with a correlation to mobile device usage.

    MY Two Cents

    Well I have to agree. The worst thing that ever happened to this great nation is 24 hr a day/ 7 day a week/ 365 news coverage. Here's the problem with that. You have so much time to fill and have to report on something that they strech the truth so much and beat dead horses. I...

    Annoying

    Many things I don't like about the media. I hate when, whatever they are talking about they also have to show me. If it is about health care, I see doctors checking people out. A report on schools, I get to see videos of feet, gas prices, people pumping gas, ect. Why? just give...

    News And Stuff Like That...

    I mean when you talk about "media" you can be talking about almost anything. I don't like the news and newspapers.  I don't like tabloids, except for one, The Weekly World News, because it is just so funny!  It's almost like the other tabloids are writing stuff in an attempt...

    So...

    The media is the number one place for people to turn to for news on everything. The media programs people; they'll make us scared, then happy. The government uses it to cover up things people shouldn't know, which I can understand. I could go on, but I don't want to. I'm not...
