The media serves a vital role in this country, and runs the gamut from ultra-conservative to ultra-liberal. One must be careful what one believes from the media, sure, but for the most part the neutral or only slightly biased outlets are not out to deceive.
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never
was and never will be.
The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is
free, and every man is able to read, all is safe."
Those words by Thomas Jefferson, from more than two centuries ago, IMHO embody the unfortunate state of affairs that have beset your nation.
United we are strong, we win. Divided we are weak, we lose.
