The media doesn't always view things negatively, though on most occasions they tend to do, depending on the topic. If it was about a country, they wouldn't want to view their country in a bad way. It would lower people's image of the place.
In being positive, they most probably would be showing some kind of achievement, etc.
Still they aren't always lying, afterall it could be easier information to accept than the truth.
i think the media tells us what we wanna hear and when we do what we see on t.v we see on the news the out come.

I second that...I don't think the media would want to tell us what really is happening, because they think that people would rather hear about things that they like instead of what is really important. (which I think is stupid)
Thanks lifeforce! (:

The title of this thread shouldn't be 'why is the media lying to us?' It should be 'Why are you listening to media that lies to you?' In this modern information age, news is just another product. If you don't like (or don't trust) the news that you've been reading/viewing/listening too... THEN TRY A DIFFERENT SOURCE! I can easily assume that everyone who is posting here has Internet access. You have the keys to the world, all you have to do is look around...
