    Dan Rather Laments That Americans Think the Media ‘Make Up Stories’

    Former CBS journalist Dan Rather appeared on NBC "Today" on Tuesday where he lamented on the American people's lack of trust in the media.
    "There’s a recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories," host Savannah Guthrie noted. "The media itself is under fire."
    "What do you think the media needs to do better to enhance its own credibility?" she asked.

    It's fox news, they taught their dumb viewers that everything out there was liberally biased and that they were the only true news, while they peddled propaganda and taught their viewers that facts are up for opinion. then you have all the bogus blogs peddling crap. And the politicians ran with that and legitimized that bullshit view and basically they taught these people that facts are whatever you want to believe it is

    Ironically, the very people who claim the media is lying to them will believe blogs and non-journalistic websites that have no sources, no journalistic integrity, and is clearly written with a bias. And they have the never to call the major networks and other news "fake"

    the same people that call media biased, also claim all universities, educations centers, and science are all bias. So it shows who really has the bias

    You don't get any more factual than science, which even if they get things wrong from time to time, they correct it, theories change, and we know it works because we use all this technology which works, and is all based on science

    There is nothing news can do. The major papers and networks have standards. Things are going to go wrong, and when they do, they correct it. There is no such things a journalism that doesn't get some things wrong, or are mislead.

    But Fox news gets shit wrong all the time and doesn't even care, they do it on purpose. They clearly put bias into theri reporting, fail to report on facts that go against what they are peddling. Anybody intelligent and honest can see an article, a news report, and immediately see when they are putting a spin on it, rather than just reporting on the facts

    I'm getting tired of having to educate you. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killia...ts_controversy
    This wasn't simply dismissing something as fake news. Dan Rather actually literally tried to push a news story based on forged documents.

    Maybe if the media wants to regain credibility, Dan Rather is the wrong fossil to put on display.

    because of one mistake? Did he pay the price for that?

    that's your idea of educating, copying a link to a wikipedia page and making no argument? After I wrote multiple paragraphs with facts and reasoning? I'm getting tired of hacks who lack the intelligence, honesty and the courtesy to actually read responses and put forth an actual argument. Once again, just like Trump, you are embarrassing yourself
