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.

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

Both are fraudulent. But our media read between the lines is more trustworthy then anything coming out of the regime.

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.

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.

Neither. Both groups lie whenever convenient in pursuit of their dubious agendas. Pathetic, pathetic, bankrupt people.

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.
