No, you can not trust the media with images all the time. The media can not be trusted because their goal is to create a story or contreversy, so if they are having trouble coming up with an image to create contraversy they can edit the image to create a story. A common way to do this is an application called photoshop, an expert using photoshop can make images look very realistic and believeable. A website with examples of edited images is museumofhoaxes.com/tests/hoaxphototest.html. Despite these problems there are still some newspapers and magazines you can trust, like the Boston Globe and news magazines like Time Magazine. Connor C. and Matt E.
