According to a recent Gallup poll, only 4 out of 10 Americans trust the mass media. However, this ostensibly optimistic number is likely due to Americans simply distrusting the mainstream media sect which is not in line with their side of the two party paradigm.
Liberals have a hard time believing FOX News while conservatives have a hard time believing MSNBC. In the meantime, however, according to Dr. Ulfkotte, all of them are manipulating you, for the same goal — to sell you war.
In an interview with RT, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte dropped a bombshell when he stated that the mainstream media writes under direct CIA pressure.

But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.

Dr. Ulfkotte is not alone in his claims either. As Zerohedge points out, multiple reporters have done the same and this kind of truthfulness is something the world needs more of.
Another great example is Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winning journalist at CC, who said that they are routinely paid by the US government and foreign governments to selectively report and even distort information on certain events. She has also indicated that the government has editorial control over content.
