It's very difficult to believe much that passes for news these days, the big problem is Bias, everyone has an agenda and there is no neutral ground. During the Election the MSM did very little on Clinton's negatives and very little on Trumps Positives, they were cheer leaders for Clinton, and since the election wow the attacks on Trump are unbelievable, where as after Obama was elected he basically got an 8 year free ride, even though Obama basically continued the Neo-Con agenda. Biases are there and thats why so many consider the MSM fake, I don't think they're fake, I think they are dishonest and biased, if this continues it will not end very well.
