The Media

Here's an interesting theory about why people trust the media less than before. When people see or read a story that they know something about, they often find that the story is riddled with holes. Before the internet nobody else would know, but now everyone else can find out about the problems. So his theory is that the media is no worse than before, we're just more aware of it now.

This sounds reasonable to me. Whenever I've read a story that I know something about, there are invariably mistakes, sometimes pretty major ones.
