I disagree. In the past you had no choice but to accept what you were told by the media because there was no other way for people to know otherwise. Now we have choices and the bias of the traditional sources has been exposed. It did not suddenly start and there was no 'golden age' of trustworthy media. We were just naive.

Maybe it was because I grew up in the UK and never had a tv until I was nine, and then it only had two channels.  There just wasn't room for them to lie to us, never mind the will.
