News media's credibility crumbling
President Bush recently turned to Brit Hume of Fox News and told him flat out that he prefers to get his "news" from White House and national-security staff, rather than as reports from journalists. Though that may have stunned the media elite, many ordinary Americans cheered. For two decades polls increasingly have indicated public dismay at the spin and fantasies of the press.

In fact, a recent Gallup Poll says Americans rate the trustworthiness of journalists at about the level of politicians and as only slightly more credible than used-car salesmen. The poll suggests that only 21 percent of Americans believe journalists have high ethical standards, ranking them below auto mechanics but tied with members of Congress.

More precisely, the poll notes that only one in four people believe what they read in the newspapers. Chicago Tribune Editor Charles M. Madigan may have put it best when he ...

Shame on you, Andy, for promoting a webpage that is clearly against what the Bible teaches. God does not hate homosexuals any more than he hates murderers, liars, cheaters, adulterers, etc. Homosexuality is a sin, and is wrong. Still the Bible says that "while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Not just for straight people, but for everyone. I agree that liberal politics has taken over the media, and we must be careful to filter the things we allow into our homes. Nevertheless, hate was NEVER preached by Jesus. In fact, Jesus himself was criticized for hanging out with the "worst" kind of people in his time, prostitutes, tax collectors, etc.

Militant activist homosexuals calling themselves "gays" and "lesbians" have taken over the news media and entertainment industry from top to bottom. Sodomites now run most of these media companies and it is no wonder that they are pushing the sodomite political agenda (the legalization of filth and perversion) like never before.

I gave up my newspaper subscription a couple of months ago, and I am by no means less informed.

Also, if you want a decent magazine that covers national & world events, take a look at

The journalists report
"what is right in their own eyes".
I love the comics too but lately there
are many 'comics' that should be placed on the Opinion page instead of the comic page.

... and lets hope you continue to listen and read with discernment Andrew, and also take heed in being careful that if you start thinking you are standing well, that is the danger point that you may fall.

I do not have a television. I have a radio which I listen in for the weather report and 06.00 news.
I buy the Times newspaper and read with discernment as to what the world is talking about - this takes me possibly fifteen minutes as I scan read this broadsheet. If I find an article worth taking up with Christian Watch whether to combat publicly, or lobby by letter or by whatever means then this proves useful.
For solid Christian commentary on daily issues I tune in to Heart of the Matter On line (broadcast by Ralph Ovadal of Pilgrim Covenant Church) for news and receive the British Church Today newspaper - a very pragmatic, Protestant, King James Bible believer based paper which reports local and international news. We cannot just ignore news, or wallow in it. We must remember we are to be salt and light but we cannot be active in this if we ignore issues. In all things, including media reading we must keep Christ as our central purpose and reason for service.

...Chris, stay that way... when i was full time in the work of the Lord, i spent three years without even looking at a newspaper, or following sport results, etc.

With hindsight, they were the BEST three years of my life. (I do not have a t.v. and i do nt listen to the radio.)

o.k. i admit ,maybe that was a bit too extreme,(?) as i lost touch of understanding the times.

In last couple of years,however, now i am back in secular work, i have got into bad habits, (e.g. looking at the paper at work, ), and find myself being dragged again into the values of the world. (e.g. how important the world rates sports news)

I must repent, and get back to serving the Lord, and i say publicly,i have dishonoured the Lord in this, it has done my soul no good at all, and as for my testimony before the world- well, to be quite frank, it stinks!

I hang my head in shame. i am a total hypocrite in my life.thankfully, reading the newspaper, or watching television, is not the unpardonable sin, otherwise, is there any hope for us who profess the Lord's name.?

Chris, keep close to the Lord in your life, never think you stand, in case you fall, dear brother.

As we all pray for the household of faith, let our prayers be full of purpose and meaningful.

Bush is right, but I think journalists are actually lower than 2nd hand car dealers. Its many many months since I bought a newspaper, the only thing I miss is the comics which is the only truthfull page in our local rag. I have been buying Time magazine but that has gone to the dogs too, full of trash and filth so out with that. Have no TV and don't listen to the radio, ha - might as well join the Amish. They don't keep up with the news either and how worried do they seem about that? Not. Seems the way to go :-)
