No. Only 6 news companies control 95% of US media. It's become very centralized. It's still possible to suss out reality if you read enough different international news media though.

The companies control the media, and the CIA restricts and dictates the media. The latter was clear around 9/11. Now people can't even talk about Syria false flag.

There is also some good out there. I think that independent news is best, with investigating journalists talking to all sane sides (not just 2). The fallacies in the articles, and the pushing of a narrative, usually show how biased an outlet is.

Western Media is credible when it has to be credible and outright lies the other 99% of the time.
