Much less trust them to inform me of important world events. Or any events for that matter.
I mention that because I see, on internet websites, news of a WaPo poll that found the vast majority of Americans oppose altering the bodies of minors in the name of 'no gender that we can see.' Most Americans also hold the old timer view that gender is a thing where the male and female of the species is concerned.
Not a single network news station I follow, either national or local, mentioned the poll. I've found few national level press outlets in general - apart from the WaPo - that have mentioned it. Do you really, really, really believe that if the poll found overwhelming support for transgender activism, it would have been passed over by the press? My guess is it would have been a top of the first hour, headline story for days.
As it is, the facts don't support the lies, therefore they are ignored. Again, how many times do you have to be lied to in order to stop believing the source that keeps lying? What's the old saying, fool me once? At this stage, if you believe the moderns press it's on you.
“He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21.7-8
I always liked that. Somehow just throwing in 'and all liars' makes it all the more emphatic. As if to say all those who practice such horrible things will not enter into the New Jerusalem. Oh, and that includes all liars.
It's even more noticeable in the Greek. In the Greek, the cadence is 'the cowardly, and faithless, and polluted, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars.' Get that? And this and that and this and that and all liars. The word 'all' (Greek pas, meaning 'all' or 'every') is put here, and here alone, to modify liars. The importance of Truth being one of the most important parts of life.
Which is why that line from the movie Excalibur is a favorite of mine. When Arthur asks what the most important virtue of knighthood is, Merlin responds that it must be truth above all. After all, Merlin says, when a man lies he murders some part of the world. Given that standard, I'd say the modern news media more than deserves its place among history's greatest mass murderers.
