Can’t remember the last time I looked at a paper, even the local rag are guilty of copying a story they have seen that I know to be untrue.
Enough twisting of words on the telly as well, so best to take it all with a pinch of salt unless you actually see the full context of any conversation.

Any publification with a political agenda can't be trusted to not spin the stories they print because they are trying to attract a certain audience and people have a tendency to only want to listen to things they want to hear.

I rarely take one source as gospel, if multiple different publications with different alignments report something in a similar way then you know it's likely the unspun truth.

As for why the Daily Mail is worse than the rest, It's known for stirring up trouble so they can report on it and they are one of the worst newspapers for misrepresenting the facts and for spin.

A good newspaper reports on the news, it doesn't try to create it.

all the newspapers are untrustworthy. ITV News have generated their own news on multiple occasions so are untrustworthy. Sky News has an obvious political agenda, the BBC has its own agendas too. Social media is worse than them all put together so all in all, we have a great choice

tbh a few of them get on my nerves , but when it comes to important news i still read most of those . The daily mail & the sun are the most irritating .

I read watch and read a lot as I like to judge for myself than I trust any singular source... but sometimes at best, truth is simply a guess. It's not always possible to determine whether the information we receive is objective, much less from an objective source... and I think that the media is chronically dishonest when they try to portray themselves as objective in their pieces... I think journalists need to be able to say it's my POV, but here's the facts, and there may be information missing here that could change my opinion... (especially when the story is obviously incomplete)

One thing I like about reading is I get a different POV, a difference in perspective... it may not be right, but it gives me things to consider when presented facts in other areas... sometimes we see the trees, but then miss the forest...
