Default The Mainstream Media

What are your views on the mainstream media where you live? Do you approve of the job it's doing?

Here in the U.S., it is not very popular because you mostly hear only what the corporations and other powerful institutions approve of on the large cable news networks. In my opinion it's why alternative media has grown so much over the years; people want new perspectives.

True that. Corporations and large news networks only approve what they want to serve to the people, not what they should, all for the sake of money. It's why fake news are all over the place nowadays and they blame the alternative media for it, simply because, in their eyes, the alternative media steal their customers and/or try to raise more public awareness on a major topic corporations want erased from people's memory because said topic made more aware is against corporations' interests for some reason.

Me personally, I only choose to be informed by selective alternative media on the Internet, media I know they won't let me down. TV is full of crap news and shows nowadays anyway.

What some people don't realize is that Fox News IS part of the mainstream media despite it trying to NOT be part of it.
