There are so many media abuses across this city and province and country and world that it would be laughable if it were not as serious as it is.
That is why alternative media is good. Not because it is faultless (just look at some of the blather on RTH) but at least it provides an alternative.
I would agree with Statius, however, that the main media governs itself according to a code of ethics. But we shouldn't confuse ethics with slant or bias. To wit: the Toronto Sun versus The Star/Spec. Both governed by 'ethics', and both slant the same stories in much different ways. The trick is to understand this.
Similarily with RTH. Many worthwhile writers-all politically biased. The trick is to know everything, inform yourself and make up your own mind.
Jason, you are falling into the trap of only believing whoever tells the story to confirm your own beliefs. Broaden your perspective. It will transorm you from cynic to critic in the pure sense of the word! Very liberating.
