I'm an European, and I don't believe in western media at all.
1. the big ones are never independent, so they can not be objective. They always represent point of views of big industry and big banks. What a political party? Doesn't matter, cause they always would find any, which would act for them for big money. It's the basis of western "democracy". Western elections are a farce: Democrats or Republicans, Labour or Conservative, SPD, Greens or CDU? What a difference? No difference! Also Democrats, Conservatives and Greens in Germany would attack Arab countries, and unconditionally support Israel, or taking care about "human rights" in China. So big newspapers, CNN, BBC and other TV-companies have only to replace the appropiate"placeholders" in their standard reports to be correct. That's all.
2. very small media companies, including a lot of quasi private websites, represent an opinion of small groups, sometimes even of a just one person, but to get the objective truth you have to read them all. A full time job, is nobody's thing. The big ones know it, so they don't care.
How they work? Two small examples:
1. about two months ago, a second biggest German TV payed school children for brutal fightings to produce a footage about riots at German schools.
2. one month ago, first German TV payed a Chinese peasant from Hubei province to encourage him to go court due to his problems with the local government.
How can an ordinary man, usually watching at most soccer on TV, judge the truthfulness of such reports? No chance! So he has to believe ...
