From the Frontline: Can You Trust the Media?
On a daily basis people not only receive information from the news media, but are being influenced. To what extent are we receiving views rather than news? How can we distinguish between facts, fashion and fiction? How can we recognise bias in the media? What are the various worldviews which lie behind the media we are exposed to? What are the practical implications of these worldviews as seen in news reporting? There seems to be many vitally important issues and events which do not receive any coverage from the media. Why is that? How can we be more careful and critical in what we read or view? How can we become more discerning in the sources we trust and the resources we make use of?
“Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
2 Corinthians 4:4
