You have to be discerning with it.
I'll tell you though, when it comes to finding out the TRUTH about some major news event, it's the Daily Mail that will report it, especially for news that happens in the US. Meanwhile, the NY Times is burying the key facts, MSNBC is making up their own facts to make the good guys look like Satan, CNN is burying the ENTIRE story to focus on a misspelled word in a tweet, and EVERYBODY on this side of the pond is parroting the same talking points.
EXCEPT for the UK Daily Mail. Sure, I have to scroll past way too many Kardashian articles, and I have to see way too many pictures of Taylor Swift's bruised legs, Miley Cyrus's icky mouth poses, and Justin Bieber's bad tats. But at least I get all the facts when I DO find an article about something that's actually important to me.
"Fake news" is a thing. When a reporter, his editor, or his media empire's culture encourages group-think and hive-mind mentality, and then everybody at that organ only writes in such a way as to support that hive mind, then I call it fake news. I don't care if you gave me all true facts; if you sanitized it by leaving out half of the true facts (or even one significant true fact), or if you just worded it in such a way that it shows your uncontrolled reporting biases, then the whole thing must be considered to be "fake". And this is why I hate the media.
But it's also the reason that I continue to fight the good fight to get ALL the facts, pics of rotting toe fungus or skin damaged by botched surgeries or flesh-eating parasites be damned. I deserve all the facts, simply because I'm worth the trouble (even if maybe only in my own mind).
Yeah, it's kind of like that.
