Today, I think the media happens to be one of the most untrusted sources of information in the world. I imagine if you ask the average person to name some trusted media outlets, the list would be very small, if anything at all. We know that the media preys on the fears of the public. They do this because, increases ratings and increases sales. But, how does it work exactly?  The video below shows an excellent explanation about what happens in this scenario.

“They (the media) are not concerned with quality, they are concerned with what will get attention.” Ryan Holiday, author of ‘Trust me I’m Lying’.

What is sad about this…believe it or not, most of your information that you receive about what is happening in the world, is from unreliable sources that publish information to get more money and not to do the most good. It is the only way they know how to operate.
