When we read about the news or watching the news tape through the television, we might easily trust and accept all the information from the TV box with uncritical and unconditionally way. As public might not have the access to reach the truth, sometimes, I won't really trust on the TV news, when some of the aspect and explanation about the news might have bias. Also, when TV news choose a topic to report, we need to have a judgment toward the news report. When the picture and vision combine can give a powerful impact on people. Do you guys agree?

Hi, yushao. I totally agree with u. I think we can't just believe the news in one aspect, if we really want to know what happened, we should look another aspect of the news. But most of the news are telling the truth, but everyone has their own view of everything, so it might have bias as you mentioned.

Hello,

I totally agree with you about we can't trust the news 100% anymore. I have a friend in Japan and she is not really concerned with the radiation rates with the products in Japan. They think there is nothing wrong with their country. However, there are fishes found with one eye or an extra leg. The plans, fishes, and many other animals are being affected and yet people in Japan are not serious with this issue.
