Always be skeptical. Actually, the rhetoric is usually against, "the media," but I'm trying to hedge against you saying, "but what about Fox News?"
Trust but verify to the best of your ability. I listened to some Ann Coulter on Hannity's radio show with someone else filling in for him on my holiday drive. They couldn't go more than 45 seconds without bashing some other media source. Have fun with that group, guy. I'll take the, "mainstream," NYT, LAT, and local news over those fools, and Fox News.
