JOURNALISM, CHURNALISM AND MEDIA BIAS

How impartial is mainstream media coverage of key political and economic issues? And just how much of tabloid news is made up?


How much journalism is churnalism - the uncritical regurgitation of press releases? To what extent can we trust what we read in the press about medical and other scientific discoveries and breakthroughs? And if their understanding of those issues is bias and sensationalist, how can we trust them with the issues politics and economics that we vote on?
