When I was a young girl my father told me to not believe anything I heard or read and 1/2 of what I see...he was a policeman and knew that even eye witness's can be mistaken...Its been a good rule to live by when reading the papers...he learn nothing but contempt for reporters...he also said on the ladder of morality, reporters are lower on the ladder than a pimp...a pimp may sell your daughter, mother or sister, but a newspaper man will sell his own mother, daughter or sister for a story.... It sounds crude but thats the way they are...

My parents taught me the same thing.
My Dad was a firefighter and most males on my paternal side were firefighters or cops.
Back as early as the 70s, from what I recall, my Dad was yelling at the TV, saying the news media was going to get us all killed, screw over America, etc.
