    Trying to make the media honest all the time is a stupid and problematic way to go about it, people just need grow a **** detector and not believe everything they see and read.

    The difference with government owned media like the ABC or BBC is it's at least partially accountable to parliamentary committees and the like.

    People complain about NPR too. I think it might be because reality has a left wing bias and the right wing doesn't approve .

    Or because public broadcasting is an inherently left wing idea. So writers are usually those on board, and private organisations have every motivation to attack it.

    What you do find as a result is a notable lack of public services trading in deliberate lies, mind. And bias is a much lesser problem in my book.
