Some say government runs media. I SOMETIMES think it might be the other way around.

Everything the government says the media says plus some.

The media will misrepresent and exaggerate things for dramatic effect to get more money. The Government will hide things either to safeguard Americans or cover their asses.

It's a toss-up. A better question is whose lies are more excusable :)

The medias lies is built on top of the governments lies

Gov. We learn about only a small part of their lies.

Depends who is in office at the time.

We have a relative handful elected politicians. The great majority of government has no incentive to lie beyond buying into the the illusion of doing their "duty". The media has no incentive not to lie, especially when the lie makes more money.

Good question! We'll be able to know when one starts to tell the truth.

My first thought was that those two things are generally paired.

It's too easy to catch the government in lies.

The media creates the spin.

Great question. It was a coin toss, since they are all liars.

The problem is that too many people believe the media, and the lies spread like wildfire. It's the same with the government, but less people watch C-Span. The people hear the gov't's lies through the media, which twists them even more.

The media lies more by accident, because they don't actually give any shits about the truth as long as ratings. The government lies more deliberately, because they have national security concerns and because the upper echelons are anus-heads.

Tough one! Gotta go with government. Media will omit enough to cause outrage. Government pees on your leg and tells you it's raining.

Media lies more. Government just hides more.
