It is so depressing these days and all providers seem to sing from the same hymn sheet. It seems to me that only bad/distorted news is on offer, there is little to zero variation. So I have stopped watching and listening, I tend to read one newspaper which is still biased but less so IMO. Do the media select, interpret, emotionalise and manipulate facts? Do they have an agenda to placate and confuse? As each crisis develops, are we being fed misinformation, spin and deception? Is there a way to cut through all the noise and keep a clear head?
