People by nature are biased especially if he or she has already been acquainted by a certain knowledge regarding particular information or issue. People’s imagination knows no boundaries, thus whatever is presented to them – may it be objective or subjective – they always take or stick to one side, with or without knowing the implications and truth on both sides. So, television reporters and all the people involved in the production of a news program have the power to sift all the information that is to be broadcasted. They omit relevant facts that definitely unleash and expose the truth. They just present what they want to present.

Second, the agenda of any reporter adds color to the tone of his or her manner of reporting the news. This often leads to omissions that cause the audience to become misinformed, thus leading them to consider and believe things that are either not true or exaggerated (Burk).To sum up, NO media is truthful because any of them may present, disseminate and broadcast biased and omitted information that definitely affects the propagation of the ‘truth’ to the audience.
