I don’t trust Discovery Network

First it was the exposure of Bear Gryllis (who I still kind of like) and his show. And now I’m seeing reports of “creative editing” on Deadliest Catch. What’s up with that? I mean, this network used to be the leader in cool outdoor adventure programming, now every time I watch something there I wonder if it’s true or not. I’m really starting to worry about the erosion of truth in America (see : George W. Bush, etc.). It seems that there isn’t enough outrage. The media was supposed to be our check against lies. It was supposed to be the one looking out for us. Now as the world becomes more complex and interconnected and the media is so expanded, it seems that we don’t have a source of truth anymore, just a bunch of opinions on who to trust. BBC anyone?
