Who do you trust more to tell you the truth: the government/politicians or the press/media?
What kind of question is that??? Neither. Both are jacked up
You guys do understand that media is a very broad term? Anything you turn to get the news is the media, whether it's the Internet, newspaper or tv.
There's plenty of reliable places, you just have to put in the extra effort.
Haha! Shit or Vomit?
Where is the neither button?
Where's the neither option? lol
Thats a toughy, on one hand the government often lies to us to protect its self interest on the other hand there's Fox News.... Yeah we better assume they are both lying, just to be safe
This is like asking if I'd rather eat horse shit or dog shit
Why isn't neither an option?
Should have put a neither option, gun to the head though, media.
How dare u ask such a difficult question ....u know better than that
It's a tie
I know the government keeps things from me but the media is so messed up. There is now way I can trust it.
Very carefully selected media...
I agree I don't trust either one
Where's the neither button?
Both are fraudulent. But our media read between the lines is more trustworthy then anything coming out of the regime.
I trust neither but the media I don't have to listen too. They don't make stupid laws that hurt the poor and help the rich
the media just defends Obama and his government. Thats why I trust none.
This is like asking "which do you expect to wait longer to rip your throat out: a wolf or a lion?"
Is there a third option?
What's the difference?
At this point I trust neither , The media should be the publics watchdogs keeping the politicians honest. Instead they have all picked sides and try to spin what ever is going on to make sure their chosen groups looks and sounds like the good guys.
ummmm......foooking neither. they are all corrupt dirty bazzztards serving their own agenda and we are all doomed
I agree. And that's sad
Just answering this question made me feel dirty. Politicians lie out of both side of their mouths, and the "news", lol well they are a bigger joke.
Well, this administration has done more to control and manipulate the media than all previous administrations combined. I'd say at this point, they are one in the same.
The two most untrustworthy groups at least with media the is choice and debate.
So nobody here trusts GAO and CBO reports? How about Congressional reports? Non of those are trustworthy?
Neither. Both groups lie whenever convenient in pursuit of their dubious agendas. Pathetic, pathetic, bankrupt people.
This was a tough one. I said media. But just barely.
Neither the media is just as corrupt as the govt.
honestly it's neither, i only picked media because the media should beheld to a higher standard, and report only truthful, fact checked news.. but we all know it's not fair or balanced :-)
The right media
This poll sounds familiar ;)
What choices. Neither.
honestly slight (SLIGHT) edge to government. I'm considering all forms (local, municipal, state, etc).
only SLIGHTLY. it's like comparing what's worse: death by fire or being burned alive?
Aren't they the same thing?
Actually, neither. Politicians make their livings lying and they pay the media outlets to say they're not lying. I trust neither.
neither,with the exception of Fox news, they all do the bidding and propaganda eminating from the head n-----.
Fox news will eat republican diarrhea if they're told it has antioxidants necessary for healthy human development. Fox is just as bad.
Are you kidding? Sadly, and I mean reeeeally sadly, neither!!
The big national outlets are hard to trust because they have big backers and don't rely on ratings as much as local news, so local news tries to get the best coverage, for the best ratings, and tend to try to maintain journalistic integrity..
Government mostly can't be trusted be aide there's too much special interests, dark money, and shady dealings...
That's almost a chicken and the egg question. I guess news/media, because my local news only covers canned food drives and the town drunk who got arrested again, so there's not much reason to lie about that.
not main stream media
The question is which do you believe less?
Neither. Pick your poison.
Neither!!! Government is all about secrets and control. The media except Fox News is all controlled and manipulated by liberals. Cnn, Msnbc, ABC, NBC, CBS, All have a agenda to protect the government and their messiah obama.
Hell, Comcast owns NBC, CNN, time warner, MSNBC and ATT wireless and others. Gee, I wonder who gave them license to monopolize!
